Still Life and Hudson Valley Landscape

"I wist not what to wish, yet sure, thought I
If so much excellence abide below,
How excellent is He that dwells on high!
Whose power and beauty by his works we know;
Sure he is goodness, wisdom, glory, light,
That has this underworld so richly dight:
More heaven than earth was here, no winter no night."
--Ann Bradstreet excerpt from Contemplations
