The Inner Landscape of Beauty / Palm Canyon
A show of Molly Reeves paintings with mine, opens this Saturday at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Wilsonville. The theme is oriented around the late John O`Donahue`s ideas about landscape, our inner worlds and the impulse toward beauty. He was a remarkable poet who had a deep relationship with the Connemara countryside where he lived.
An old friend just sent me this photo of a landscape I did in the 70`s. The subject is a canyon outside of Palm Springs where we used to hike. There are several of these, the most famous being Tahquitz Canyon, where a scene from the movie 'Lost Horizon' was filmed.
Her parents bought it and I never took a photo of it. My memory of it was completely off, no surprise there.
