“Come, slow down, pause and enjoy the artwork here. Smile and remember to see the beauty and truth in the simple things all around you. If my work brings to mind memories of special experiences you have had or if it generates feelings of gratitude for God’s awesome creation and amazing love, I feel I have achieved success in my art.” –Beth Shistle
