Referring to his Tamarind lithograph, Southfield, Rockland,2001, Beerman wrote:
This lithograph had its beginnings in one of my favorite places for sketching – a state park a few miles north of our home in the Hudson River Valley region os New York State. What I observed that July morning was a bank of trees in their peak summer abundance, with deep shadowy blues and muted grey greens in a luminous silhouette against a brightening yellow sky. I strive to record and preserve a particular moment in time – a cloud formation, a summer sunset, a winter’s field – a moment when I feel especially connected to the natural world.
