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.

Large Landscape

Polarity, 40”x30” acrylic

Another large landscape on the easel. I am working on two paintings this size for a show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.

I have really enjoyed working on such a large cradled board. It seems every time I paint something with some scale I want to do more! As I am finalizing work for my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon I am also finalizing paintings for a few galleries sprinkled around the country. It seems I am always scrambling.
