"Witnessing a miracle in this day and age is a rare occasion. Some may go searching for them, but most of the time they happen unexpectedly. Brittany Maier is blind, autistic and has a rare and remarkable gift for music."

Trahern, aka Easel Cathedral, refers to his art as "experiential".  
I'm a storyteller. Capturing the life moving all around me, it plays like a song. 
Those who find me painting at that time. It's where we are, and we're sharing the air, sunlight, shade and laughter of that moment and place. 

When the painting breaths.

A warm sunny day in March down by the river walk. I made some new friends, as we all took in the sunlight reflecting off the water.
