a monday

While the winds are tossing the bamboo and the trees and it is warm one day and very cold the next, there are birds back in the birdbath! White tailed doves, cardinals, some regular doves and some little twittering things. The blue jays, who normally rule the garden, are not around yet.

So I've been pulling up "weeds" and fighting back the firecracker plants. Stabbed by the roses and finally cut by my own clipper, I gave it up and headed for the studio. And there, I found a new series to start. Still using the square panel, but this time making a faux frame enclosing a small, intimate painting. I did this years ago and now I return to it. I'm happy with it and while it may not be the total new direction, it is pleasing and enticing to me. You just have to keep going to the studio, something happens eventually.

About Me

My photo
I am living and painting in the little town of Houston. A far way from my San Francisco beginnings. I paint what I see of the human condition, be it human, animal or object. The glimmer of humor, pathos, and spirit in so much of what I see is the basis of what I paint.
