Contemporary Landscape

Every time I sit in front of one of Jenn's pieces, I think of a place I have been before.  The clouds sound like a fiberglass boat cutting the curls of the lake, and the water smells like sun-kissed skin.  I am reminded of a childhood and an adolescents;  I am reminded of a time when all I ever knew was safe.
Thank you for this unremitting bliss.
