Time and things I see.

Things I see and how I see them:
Time’s a funny thing. Then it comes to life we are so often racing towards the next thing. “Off to the bus, just about time for lunch, TGIF”, all these saying are deadline or per say place card or mini milestones in our days. That turn into weeks then months……. And then the years start to flow on by.
Occasionally I like to think I step out of that “go to”, “next step” life. Lately even though my life has felt more busy that ever I have found some small moments in time and life that I’d like to share. This first set of images I intend to turn into a grey scale collection of large abstract paintings.

I’ve been working on three commission pieces as of late all of which are at critical places in their development yet the changes to most I’m sure would seem nominal. So sorry about the lack of posts as of late. I mean really I’m not even that excited to write about the 65th layer of glaze or varnish. Anyhow I digress. I’ve been really trying to find some balance in my life lately. I can’t say I’ve been very successful but the adventure has been once in life time. I hope where ever you are when you read this that your well and thriving in the life you have.
***time has elapsed since I started this post so for now I’ll bid you adieu and hope you know you’re loved in this life. It’s time to paint.

This piece address the paradox of man as the destroyer or man the nurturer. As mankind destroys the rain forest and poisons the seas, he also creates works of beauty and words of deep thought and emotional range. So me me this piece is Nature Enhanced, by Nature. As I was created by nature therefore I am enhancing what nature gave me as a human animal an spiritual being. Through my gift of paint and words.

Greetings from the garden

Good morning, I braved the back stairs to bring you the next round of roses from the garden as well as a couple shots of some other trinkets.
Remember I’d mention how big the rose bush is that’s right by the house?

Big right? It’s finally getting ready to give me my beautiful tea roses most likely in the next two weeks.
None of the following photos have been enhanced at all just iPhone camera and my shaky morning hands.

And this thing? I don’t know what it is wisteria maybe? It occupies a 8x8x8 sq foot space on a trellis and at this point there’s no getting by it. It owns the whole corner of the path.
Well I’m off to the studio to see if I can’t make some magic happen today. Much love and Happy Sunday.

Thoughts of the knights

I don’t have many words tonight so I’ll be expressing myself through photos.

How I see them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Darkness finds me grasping at your door
Let me in I cry for the night is cold
Dark
Alone
The pain seizes all that I am
Fear
Consumes
Balance
Lost
Shakes and quakes fly from
My bones like bats in the night
Relentless
Unforgiving
Constant
Sleep is lost like child in the woods
Tremor
Hard
Pain
God find my heart and take in from
This place
Of
Dark
Cold
Pain
Frozen in time my hand search to find the words to free my soul
Nothing, nothing……….

Goodnight world until we meet again for another adventure may you sleep in angels wings.
