"In his best known book Walden (1854) (which every landscape artist ought to read), the American transcendentalist Henry Thoreau wrote: ‘It is something to be able to paint a particular picture … but it is far more glorious to … paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look’. Like Thoreau, Becky is most at home when out of doors. And I suggest that, in some important respects, her paintings embrace his ideal. For they seek to represent not the gross materiality of reality but, rather, the ambiance of mystery and intangibility that encompasses, pervades, and binds all things together. In some of her paintings, she renders the translucent and tenuous membranes of life. In others, Becky shows us the world as though bursting apart, like dried autumn leaves tossed into the air. During our conversations, she has spoken of her works as alluding to the transfer of energy from wind to sea to shore, and from hand to brush to canvas, and as evoking a change of state from breaker to creature and from woodland to human. Becky is, in this sense, a painter of ideas. Not in a purely intellectual or conceptual sense. This is felt thought: notion marinade in emotion. And, these are works in which meaning is mediated as much through the process of painting as by their represented subject."
