Market Day

"None of us perceive the world in exactly the same way. Our oneness lies in a yearning to touch and to understand. My work is an endeavor to share my thoughts and vision through form and color and relationships, hoping to charge my images with meaning which will reach across the spaces between us."


This piece was inspired by a wonderful day in Old Mexico – exploring the Friday market at Toluca. This small hill town hosts a true native market. The colors and scents still linger in memory. These native markets are also social events where people not only come together to buy, sell or swap goods but to share stories and news. There is laughter and chatter and children playing . This young woman, walking to market with her goat, turns to acknowledge the greeting of a friend, the first such connection in anticipation of a busy, happy day.
