little satisfactions

The days grow longer already.  Perhaps more noticeable in the places I inhabit....Texas and California.  It's nice not to be driving in the dark at 5pm.  Little satisfactions.  The structure of bare trees made visible by the season; the low slant of afternoon light like a spotlight on humble things giving them life; people taking turns at a non working signal;  smiles from strangers; falling asleep with a book on my lap.

I promise I'm not about to break out into song....but it's good to not be rushing around so much and take in the view, the moment, the breath ....right now.

  1. I think I know what you mean about breaking into song. Sometimes the world can be such an intensely beautiful place it can affect one like that.

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.
