Possibly you have already figured out that A Yellow Wood is a reference to Robert Frost’s 1920 poem The Road Not Taken, a piece of literature quoted all too often because it is applicable to almost everyone who has ever made a decision in their life and thought twice about whether it was the right one. For me, it was the decision not to do exactly what everyone expected of me, but instead to give up my steady job, relocate with my husband back to our home state of New York, and devote my time to painting. In case you’re curious, yes, so far that has made all the difference.
