Quite simply the most perfect frame for "A Very Simple Happiness”! And perfectly beautiful framing work by Mr. Shanabrook!

Oh, the magnificent complexity of Mr. Shanabrook’s simple happiness! It’s in the honesty and grace of her symmetry, in her pleasing lines and contours, and in the way the slope of her little black roof falls into shadow. And it’s reflected in her humility, too, the consequence of a design both thrifty and spare, bereft as she is of chimney, cupola, and column. It rests in the serene stillness of a cloudless sky, and in the whisper of endless unspoiled acres clad in a late-Spring green softness; it’s in the unbridled way the warm orange and red of her walls cast their Crayola colors into the cool shade of the tall grasses, dying them like skeins of bright yarn, and there’s even a glimmer in the pitch of her roof where the light reflects bits of a baby-blue heaven. All of these unabashed joy of infinite possibilities!

"At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear."-- Norman Maclean. I don't remember how I came across this painting, but I uttered a small, "Oh!" and put it on my wish list for better days. When they came, the painting had been sold. Here's the nub of it: I asked John if he could do it or something like it for me with some hesitance even though he invites one to have a custom piece..He responded genuinely that he would be pleased to and graciously showed me the work at an interim stage to make certain it was what I wanted. John is accessible and personable, and I would not hesitate to request a custom piece in the future. I love the size of these paintings. At these dimensions, the composition will draw you to come, step closer and visit. I am so thankful for this.

A luminous silver, and a perfectly beautiful complement to a stormy sky dressed in taupey-gray! And, as always, impeccably beautiful framing work by Mr. Shanabrook!

Thunder is such a lovely visceral menace in Mr. Shanabrook’s moody turbulent sky! A beautiful fright, that spectacular taupey-gray canopy of gathering clouds, churning in agitation and pressing upon us, and the lightning is its punctuation mark, a brilliant white flourish and nature’s dramatic illumination of its ferocity and turmoil and our frailty and inconsequence. And its voice is otherworldly and ancient, beginning as a low resonant rumble from deep within the breast of the storm-beast and, by degrees of proximity, builds from moans and guttural howling until, after the strike, it reaches a crescendo in a wall of noise like a passionate and bellicose “TA-DA”! And then it’s upon us, and its voice is brontide-like, meant to rattle our bones and shake our world. And so it does.
