Carol Weiss Still Standing Strong Watercolor and gouache 21 x 28 $350

"I have wonderful memories of gathering with the Firnew Studio artists on the grounds of Montpelier on Thursdays during the summer and fall of 2020. We met on the top of a hill behind the visitor center and on even the hottest of days, the shade of very old trees and the unfailing breeze on the hilltop guaranteed a delightful day of painting. Never far from my thoughts was the knowledge that some of those trees were as old as the Constitution James Madison so greatly influenced. This piece was created entirely from my imagination during the winter of 2021, after our nation had experienced a very stressful electoral test. The tree front and center in the foreground is my metaphor for our Constitution – old, but still standing strong."
