The island of Martha's Vineyard is a small isle off the coast of Cape Cod. Its summer population is 200,000 and its winter population is 23,000. Having been born and reared here, the place has very deep and emotional ties to my life. While I've been back countless times in my life, its still always an adventure and a pleasure to return. This is my tribute to my home. The colors signify the bright beauty I always envision in my mind. The dark swirls of the background is my heart each time I must leave again. The abstraction of each piece is the complicated emotions that I often feel within as I find myself far away from my original home.
