As stated in a previous blog, in the Footsteps from the Past series

I attempt to portray that mysterious moment in time when the past seems to

re-emerge and intermingle with the present, if only briefly. The 6th artwork in

the series illustrates the living figures of a Colonial Williamsburg coachman

driving a carriage and horse, in a scene with the colonial ghostly figures of a

young man and a woman leading an ethereal horse—both presumably slaves who

stand in stark contrast to the regal carriage and driver. The near

collision of past and present creates a moment of haunting awareness between

the viewer and the ephemeral figures in the artwork. These kinds of spiritual

overlays seem to appear throughout Colonial Williamsburg and often inspire

thoughtful reflection and further discovery.
