This is another in the series on reclaimed panels. There will be quite a few of these as my friend and I had a very successful dumpster diving session a couple months back.
Every day you get a chance to start over….
I just wondered whether I’ve now written more haiku than sonnets….
Today’s inspiration. I just love living here.
I had a painting accepted in the Sunrises and Sunsets Art Exhibit, held by Fusion Arts. There’s no excuse for not seeing this exhibit, despite the current closure of most facilities, because it’s online. Happy to see that my friend Diane Morgan won one of the awards.
Last week I went to the monthly meeting of the La Mirada Art Club to talk about my work and demonstrate part of my process for them. I was fortunate that one of the members agreed to take some pics of me working while I was assembling the refractured watercolor.
The poem in it reads:
Dawn leaves me speechless
These gold and turquoise jewels
precious beyond words.
Posting my monthly newsletter promptly seems to be a good item to have on the New Year’s Resolution list.
“Stretch” is reminiscent of a painting I did in the early days where the tree reaches into the sun. This one though has a poem – a haiku – written for it and into it:
Stretch into the light
My leaves are needing the sun
Food comes from the sky.
I was happy to learn recently that in the 3rd Annual Skies Art Exhibition at Fusion Arts I received an Honorable Mention for the painting below.
A recent sale of one of my larger paintings resulted in this young couple hanging a beautiful view over their dining room table.
A recent sale at Palo Alto subsequently got back to me as a pic of the painting in its forever home. This one might not look as interesting as you would think it could be, but I knew before the new owners took it home, it was going in the guest bathroom, so most of the surrounds are omitted for aesthetic reasons.
