Elizabeth Berkshire

I paint objects trying to remain on this earth.  I don’t know exactly why.  I do know that the nostalgia they offer is tricky—as the original builders are often long gone.  Painting with oil allows just enough time, and it offers a color palette that best matches how the object makes me feel.  The artist Sue Coe once told me that that one day I would have to paint.  I don’t know how she knew this, but she was right.
