Rainstorm on the Pond
26 X 36 inches, oil on canvas, $1500 USD
The rain pelts the surface and the viewer sees that bob and weave, and the internal combustion of shifting light and plants below, the movement of the pond. These things are worlds unto themselves ~~ galaxies of intermingled life.
The colors range from dark Prussian blues to pale greens and russets; the water lilies with whites and yellows, fragile pinks. And the threading stems and roots below the surface, communicating pleasures of being vibrant in such a thrilling world.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE PERNOD DRINKER (oil on canvas 18 X 26 inches $950.00 USD)
The bar at summer’s night, volume up of music and voices, the excited entrance passes to fuzzy insolvency. Here The Pernod Drinker stares back at the viewer in that happy licorice yellow green fog, twirling her hair, putting a distance between herself and the hardships of reality.
The night here is good. A couple in the upper left embrace; on the right a bar drinker raises some ruby red; in the crook of her arm the feet and legs of talkers are visible; headlights flash the front window and bar signs glow. Yes, the night here is good.
