“Mid-day Reflection” I chose this painting to submit to your contest because it symbolizes my view of my future: life in a rural place where I can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors every day. This symbolizes my philosophy that we are called to return to a more simplistic way of life: time for rest, time for work, and time to contribute to my community. I hope to move West where there is open land, but also a sense of community & shared peace.
