Avril Paton, "Windows in the West," 1993. Seen at the lovely Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow, in June 2012. The tenement building is very typical of Glasgow and Edinburgh -- there's an interesting history if you do a web search.
We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent on its vulnerable reserves of air and soil; all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. ~Adlai Stevenson
