Synopsis: The faces of the people he portrays reflect strength, dignity, integrity, and simplicity. Even in his paintings in which people are absent, there is a sense of a human presence...[His watercolors remind us of] the precious cultural birthright of traditions of home, family, and land. In the remembrance of the past lies something essential to understanding the present and future; it is this message that Home to JERICHO captures.
From Library Journal:
Shuptrine's informal account of his search for "the way back home" consists of paintings, oral history, poetry, and musings about the backwaters and forgotten places of 15 states from Vermont to Texas. Shuptrine's paintings, like those of Andrew Wyeth, are filled with earth tones and a feeling for the soil. Refreshingly, he makes no attempt at originality in his painted vision of home and those who live there; his style is comfortable and homey. This personal account for the general reader may remind many of their own roots. Douglas G. Campbell, Warner Pacific Coll., Portland, Ore.
