Pear on Stone

Pear on Stone | East Wenatchee, WA | August 2019

A skyscraper stuns in design and complexity, but so does a garden gazebo. A 20-ingredient stew bursts with flavor, but so does trout sautéed in butter. Jackson Pollock’s complex art mesmerizes, but so does a Chinese painting of one blade of grass. An object’s shape — just that — can trigger a smile of appreciation. Beauty often rests in the simple.
