    Bio & Artist Statement Eric Harrison

     “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
    -Henry D. Thoreau

    "My art is the result of my thoughts and feelings about the place where I live.  Freedom, Imagination and encounter with nature are the source from which these visions are realized. Ultimately these paintings stand as evidence of a life being lived, and above all are meant to be seen, so as you look at the paintings allow your eye to wander and your mind to wonder"  -Eric Harrison
