let it shine




available through Edgewater Gallery

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
Everyday, everyday, everyday in every way
I’m gonna let my little light shine.

There is a blinding beauty to metal roofs I really love.
There is also a beauty in the idea of letting light
shine in the darkness. This little study was started
in the midday sunshine in Bristol, Vermont.
This Little Light of Mine has become a civil rights
song of protest. While I want to express my delight
at form and composition, light and color, I’m also
acutely aware of another level of expression,
one that honors the challenges we face.
