The Tapestry is the crowning jewel of this trilogy with fascinating scenes exploring the arts of Tudor England. I loved learning about the "arras", the formal term for Flemish tapestry work of this time period. And the fact that England was at this t ...more

Irving Stone
“To try to understand another human being, to grapple for his ultimate depths, that is the most dangerous of human endeavors.”
Irving Stone, The Agony and the Ecstasy

Mary F. Burns
“I want to paint something that no one has ever painted before," he was saying. I almost laughed at that -- doesn't every artist? We are all touched, however lightly, by the finger of god, and long to be gods ourselves, bringing forth new creations, and yet, so very few achieve it. Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Titian. We stumble in their footsteps, and wait at the closed door.”
Mary F. Burns, Portraits of an Artist

Susan Vreeland
“She sat very still, listening to a stream gurgling, the breeze soughing through upper branches, the melodious kloo-klack of ravens, the nyeep-nyeep of nuthatches - all sounds chokingly beautiful. She felt she could hear the cool clean breath of growing things - fern fronds, maple leaves, white trillium petals, tree trunks, each in its rightful place.”
Susan Vreeland, The Forest Lover

Mary Sharratt
“I am the serpent that devours her own tail--her own tale. If you tell a tale well enough, it becomes a path to follow. I shed my skin and begin again.”
Mary Sharratt, Summit Avenue

Susan Vreeland
“That a thing made by hand, the work and thought of a single craftsman, can endure much longer than its maker, through centuries in fact, can survive natural catastrophe, neglect, and even mistreatment, has always filled me with wonder. Sometimes in museums, looking at a humble piece of pottery from ancient Persia or Pompeii, or a finely wrought page from a medieval illuminated manuscript toiled over by a nameless monk, or a primitive tool with a carved handle, I am moved to tears. The unknown life of the maker is evanescent in its brevity, but the work of his or her hands and heart remains.”
Susan Vreeland
