"As the years have passed and I've experienced more of life, I've discovered with somewhat of a sad realization that it is human nature to want to take the easy path, the one that requires the least of us and that makes no demands upon our attention or time. We put our blinders on, so to speak, and go about our daily tasks with very little thought of the extraordinary. Crimson Ribbon is a fearless refusal of this frame of mind. While the title points out only a minuscule portion of the painting, representing our absorption by the mundane, the remainder of the painting insists that we enjoy a broader view. There is beauty all around us, in the tiniest of details, if we will but take the time to observe, and once we have had a true taste of the magnificent beauty of the earth, we are changed forever." - Heather Theurer
