"Growing up near Concord, I spent many happy hours in and around Walden Pond. And being a landscape painter for most of my adult life, I've returned to Walden often for inspiration. (Twenty paintings in a series, so far.) My on-going interest in Walden Pond is partly due to its natural beauty, but also to the writings of Thoreau, whose core ideas I agree with and try to live by. Mainly Simplicity and Truth."
-- Prescott Gibbons
