Landscapes & People

 Most of my landscapes contain people which is a lesson learned from my mother. She believed that people added important information about the scale and era.  For example, hair styles and clothing often indicated an approximate date.  I sometimes argued that pure landscapes devoid of people were more universal.  It is interesting how I followed her advice without even realizing it.
