a fairy tale like landscape with a wood and wheatfield to the left, a pond in the foreground with a mermaid-like creature basking on the left, people wading and bathing in the right, a black boar in a field under a tree, behind that a path with two ghostlike figures, behind that a nude figure riding a white crane and another climbing a ladder to a house's high window.  In the very far distance can be seen faint blue construction cranes and oil rigs

"Sitemap" is an egg tempera painting on panel

The painting is dreamlike, the perspective peculiar, like the strange pseudo-medieval Howard Pyle illustrations in my favorite childhood storybook.

It was meant to be reminiscent of early Italian Renaissance paintings. The landscape is based on my childhood memories of growing up in New England.
