About the artwork

30 Years of Saturdays in the Park"Inspiration Valley" Framed 4' x 4' acrylic & glaze painting by Columbus artist Donna Rosenberg.

From the artist:

"The creation of 'Inspiration Valley' came about by the past, present and future of Mill Race Park and the annual free community concert that Our Hospice provides. The goal in creating this painting was to inspire the viewer to celebrate the joys of color and design combined with nature and community. I love the infinite joy and possibilities of paint. Whether it's applied by my brush, pallet knife or my fingers, what can be created is 'endless.'"

"As I dipped into the past I found historically, Mill Race Park was called 'Death Valley,' however in the 1960's the story changed. Columbus, as a community, transformed the valley into a 83 acre park and later in the 80's it became what we know of it today. From the covered bridge to the circular lake, and of course the earthen amphitheater that brought you 30 years of Saturdays in the park, hopefully this story is revealed as you look at the surface, texture, and color moving around the canvas. The final piece portrays a relationship of the spirit, and the creation has its own life and story as do all the families and patients of Our Hospice."
