NATALIE LAROCQUE

 "I appreciate the inspiration and spiritual beauty of Vermont's land and skies and everything in between. I love Vermont; it's my home. One of my favorite images was taken 2 miles from my home, the title clearly stated in its expressive genuine visual intensity, incredible to believe how fortunate I was to see what looked like the 'Foothills of Heaven.' How could I not be compelled to acknowledge such incredible beauty in each living thing we share our lives in and with. I feel fortunate that I am able to stop, for at least that one moment and see what is there, waiting to be seen. In my gratitude, I am compelled not only to capture the images, but to share them through renderings of images as paintings and photographic prints."

I pondered to myself recently what were the most important things in my life. The answer seems to be clear that art was up there in importance. Why? Frankly, I don't really know. May be someone here can enlighten me?
As was my wont w
hen I have some free time, I browsed the marvelous site, wahooart.com, where they keep thousands of digital images for customers to select to have printed into handsome canvas prints for their homes.
This image jumped out to jolt my reveries: Still life with bread, by the Cubist Georges Braque. Is art like this picture, as essential as bread and water, or should I say bread and wine?
