"For many years, I have been bringing out-of-town friends and family to Montpelier to tour this historic building. Like many visitors, I am now increasingly aware that Montpelier is much more than the trappings of a famous man. It was a village - the residence of hundreds of enslaved people who lived and worked on site, often through generations of families. As I painted, the building became secondary to me. My thoughts focused on the people in the foreground, searching for their cultural history. Thanks to Montpelier’s research and field excavations, much of it is finally coming to light."
