"It's A Gift To Be Simple."   The title of this painting is a line from an old Shaker hymn on the peace and wonder that comes from appreciating what you have, and the small scenes of beauty all around us.  This simple -- yet complex -- study of nails in an old wall captures that sense of wonder.    It is one of the paintings chosen by Dana Gallery in Missoula, MT as part of the "New Love" exhibit, and is available now at that gallery.
