Nancy Fredericks received a package of of homeopathic remedies from India. A boxed kit enclosed in styrofoam and wrapped in muslin. The fabric was sewn shut and sealed with sealing wax. We each recounted our unwillingness to throw this packaging away. It was a large enough remnant to stretch and gesso. The resulting 16 x 24 support demanded a landscape, and I thought 'a Hudson River School painting full of light.' I found Inness image, his original painting twice as wide and twice as high. The shipping and customs provenance remains on the reverse side!
