Context Is Everything

Imagine yourself as a flying kindergartener, soaring over the wooded hills of northwest Connecticut. Can you see the winding roads and driveways? Can you see the trees and gardens of red and white roses? Can you see the houses, lit inside? Gleaming windows and flat screen televisions?

This is certainly not a "realistic" painting, but a few strokes and bits of color viewed in context, conveys much meaning. This morning I share with you three other views: context as it effects writers by
Tina Blue, the importance of context to archeology by Kris Hirst, and context as it concerns a developer of artificial intelligence, the IdeaPivot Corporation.

Art as food for thought, what a breakfast!
- Nancy Boudreau

This painting is approximately 5" x 7" acrylic painting on gessoed matboard, in an 8" x 10" gray colored mat, unframed, shipped to you directly by the artist. The title and prose that appear above are handwritten on the back of the painting. The painting is also signed and dated on the back.
