Ode to Summer

Summer, 10”x10” acrylic

Summer,

Once again you made me your fool. All those warm days and late nights the sun barely resting. I tried so hard to keep you by my side.

Now you are off to some southern land. I laugh as you go but I will never forgive you. I prize my solitude and I will cling to the darkness. Maybe I will pine over an old photo of you this winter. In April a sparrow might spark a faint memory.

Damn, I just want you to come back.

Travels with Art

Mercies, 30”x24” acrylic

I have spent a lot of time this summer delivering art and and visiting galleries. I am currently on a road trip to close out my “Apocalyptic Beauty” exhibit. I took a slight detour to drop off a painting I sold to a great friend recently. He immediately took down a framed print and hung this painting in its place of honor. Now off to Astoria, Oregon!
