“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste and remember what peace there may be in silence...“
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here...“
“Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world...“
Max Ehrmann, 1927

This work was made on request by a person who was having a house built in Montana, USA and wished to have a work with a text chosen by himself.
On the basis of the photographs taken in the place and after a series of sketches, the work was finished.
