“It was a beautiful fall day, so I took myself into the woods to sit & paint,” says Pearson of the moment she was inspired to create Ebb + Flow. She recalled a memory of her youngest son building a cairn (a stack of rocks) in the middle of a river upstate, observing his focus and the delicate balance of the rocks surrounded by the flowing water. “I reimagined the cairn and sat in silence painting stack after stack.” This desire for balance in the midst of life’s natural rhythm is what she explores so creatively in her work.
