With oak-leaf patterns and browns mixed from Fall, my fence recedes until next year. It will soak the rain and shield from the alley.
Within my yard, Spring will find its way back again.
This is a train trestle within and without. It is a bit of realism attached to my creative hand, where embellishment of design gives me a snort. By itself, the trestle is an engineering marvel that is a photographer’s love-lust. It’s angular and sexy for an old body.
I hope I just gave it a new breath of life and dedicate this painting to my friend Kathy. She loves detail and hope I satisfy.
Early in the morning, flowers dance in the alleys and know the sun is coming. It is toward their end this year. They know it, I know it and my dog knows its.
As usual, we are walking with somewhat different priorities. However, Ozzy (Australian Cattle Dog) knows that I like to sketch as much as he well… whatever he does and thinks. One thing is certain, the scents are attractive to both of us.
This is my second painting in my birthday book of handmade paper. It certainly slows me down, but it yields great fortunes and merry discovery. Each shadow I see reveals its own dimension. Do you see the pages and how they reveal themselves at the bottom?
Often when I paint, I am reminded or hear music that felt good at one time or another. Today was no different and felt the hands and motion of Julee Cruise (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKDetywgLb4). She is ethereal personified when her voice lilts down and over.
This triptych becomes inconsequential compared to Julee’s sky writing voice.
This evening was perfect with sun somewhat muted – the air almost crisp. Somewhere between now and 3 weeks from today, Fall will rise, leaving Summer’s discomfort.
The furniture on my front porch was not taken advantage of this year, and I wanted one last shot. After sketching, I came in, poured a bourbon and painted.
A perfect end for a fading day. A chair and cushion.
Breaking news and thoughtless commentary on the world.
