I was delighted subsequently to learn of the availability of her book *Elevated Perspective.* The amazon.com page for this book prominently mentions her "writing" in the book but does not say much about the pictures! Joellyn Duesberry's description of her artistic evolution is interesting, but it is not lengthy. She does say "Albert Camus and Virginia Woolf have been quoted as saying the whole of creative life is devoted to retrieval of first-sense impressions. This pictorial gathering of my life as a painter stands as a testament that I have come full-circle, and that emotional abundance remains with me, inexhaustible as memory itself."
But the pictures are what make this book spectacular. The color is a delight. The settings are evocative, e.g. of places I have been in the west. Many states and a few countries are represented: NY 13, CO 42, MT 4, ME 24, NM 30, France 9, Italy 3, and a small number of CA, WY, UT, VA, MA, WA. Subjects include seashore/marsh/bog 18, ranches/farms/orchards/rural towns 19, French and Italian landscapes 10, western landscapes 70, quarries 8, gardens 4, cityscapes 6, colorful junkyards 4, wonderful waterfalls 2, Hudson River 1. There is a nice "Abstract Fantasy of New Mexico 1."
I took this book apart so I could pin pages serially on a whiteboard on my wall. One can delightfully get lost looking into these pictures.Read more ›
