Peacefulness and tranquility are such precious commodities. As I look upon the undisturbed waters surrounding Nanette's Cottage, I am reminded of simpler times in my own life. Some sixteen years ago I had the chance to lead a quieter existence - some might even say that it was during this period that I first learned the serenity that has become the essence of my art. It was during an extended stay in southern England that I first discovered that life moved at a kinder and gentler pace for those who would seek it. Our evening walks as a young family often led us to the cottages that lined the meandering stream at the center of our village. It was on one such walk that I discovered a cottage that in my mind would always be linked to my life partner, Nanette. "I would love to live in a cottage like that someday" Nanette had remarked at the time. Now, as we prepare for our 27th anniversary and the advent of my wife's birthday, I at long last give to Nanette the gift of that cottage as in years past I have given painted cottages to my children.
Surrounding Nanette's Cottage are the distinguishing elements of the good life: an enduring faith as symbolized by the spire in the distance, physical recreation as symbolized by the row boat with its proud sailor aboard (Nanette's childhood teddy bear); and the glowing lights from within the cottages symbolizing the pleasures of hearth and home. Here is a place for all to rest from life's toils. Perhaps, like me, you long for such places as the seasons of life get busier and more filled with stress. Here then is a resting place for all who long for simpler times.
