More nightswimming

“I forgot my shirt at the water’s edge
The moon is low tonight…NightswimmingII, 11x14, acrylic on canvas

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
I’m not sure all these people understand
It’s not like years ago
The fear of getting caught
The recklessness in water
They cannot see me naked
These things they go away
Replaced by every day…” – R.E.M “Nightswimming”

Quite different from the magnificient hybrid blooms that are stealing the show in my backyard this August! IMG_20150818_090821883IMG_20150818_091010953g!  IMG_20150818_090729662IMG_20150730_191342605


Pausing, midway through July…since the open house I’ve been working on a stained glass project by day (stay tuned for updates) and savoring long evenings of summer and weekends at the lake. Enjoy summer, it goes by so fast!

Nightswimming,/remembering that night/ September’s coming soon/ I’m pining for the moon
And what if there were two/ Side by side in orbit around the fairest sun?
The bright tide forever drawn/ Could not describe nightswimming – R.E.M “Nightswimming”

My Animal Trails

I like places where the forces of nature are always changing, that’s why abstraction appeals to me.The spirit of a place is what I focus on while painting. In the landscape of my home, the particulars of the season, the road and the light are imbedded in the experience and are second nature to me. The Road Home III blog

Spring is here

Vernal Equinox, 12x12, acrylic on canvas



On the equinox, the sun rises due east and sets due west, everywhere on the globe!

It’s been a busy and productive week, lots of new work in progress and some new finished works. (left, Vernal Equinox, 12″x12″, acrylic on canvas)

By the calendar, spring has sprung but I’m still painting with yellow sunshine inside the studio, waiting for sandal weather! (Meadow just wants to go outside and chase birds.)

Who says dogs get to have all the fun? There’s a happy palette…(see below)
