3 NEW PAINTINGS JUST FINISHED, THOUGH (~this caveat~) IN THESE RIPENING DAYS OF A LIFE…
…I seem also to be going back over paintings with a new thought, a change in tone, an altered shadow. In my youth I remember thinking it sacrilege to touch a painting again once considered FINI. I can’t remember the origins of such a prejudice. It may be, with a change of heart, that I care less about my own ferocious dogmas ~~ having seen that doesn’t seem to lead anywhere pleasing. Maybe my soul’s getting a lighter touch. The first two are brand new, the third is something effusive threatening to get out of hand but I think I stopped in the nick of time…..
1. MAGNOLIAS, BLUE TIN BUCKET, CAT NAP
Lovely Magnolias blossoms and their leaves crowding into a sweet old tin bucket in a big open room. The sleepy eye of a wily cat watching your every move as you enter the room.
2. SEA BIRDS, SANDBAR
Seabirds nestling on the low tide’s exposed sandbars on an overcast late morning, in flight, in commerce, in life.
A bouquet that just kept growing despite any thought of fitting into the dear little glass vase. It all kind of grew, on to a gentle seaside, outside, and maybe a moon shine going on….
