Ellen Phelan, American (1943 - )


"I remember fondly being a very young age, three, four, napping with my mom in the bright summer sun beneath a sumac tree nestled in a small depression on a hill. While to my knowledge, there are no pictures from that particular time, I feel that if there were, they would be woefully inadequate. Yes, they’d document what color my shirt was, the relative size of this little nook, and other details obscured from my memory over time. But what the pictures could not reproduce is the warmth of the sun, the smell of the air, and the closeness between child and parent, that remains as vivid today as at that moment. " - Ellen Phelan
