Summer's End

Summer's End 8 x 10 pastel

I don't paint enough with red and orange. The Hudson River Valley has been swallowed single digit temps lately so I thought an homage to summer might warm us up a bit.

Yesterday, we said goodbye to our dearest Ursa. For nearly 13 years, she taught us in the ways of Gratitude; Presence in this very moment; Frisky; Acceptance; Adoration. She had no big ambitions that might get dashed. No regrets. She taught us that it is OK to just sit in the back yard all afternoon. When the Divine sparked the notion of life, well lived, it was Ursa she had in mind. 
We intend to pay attention to her lessons. We will continue to walk up and down the hills every day – sometimes twice as we did with her – but if only once, that will be OK too.

"Haricot Verts" 11 x 7 pastel  SOLD

This was a Christmas commission. Maybe it will bring a breath of summer to the Northeasterners under many inches of snow.

Kerteminde Bugt

Kerteminde Bugt  6 x 10 pastel
This is from a photo I took on my friend Robert's sailboat in Denmark, off the island of Fyn.
It was 10 PM and the sun had not set yet. It was a magical evening, even if the antique winch
went missing.

Backlit Sheep

Backlit Sheep  10 x 8 pastel  $100

Puerto Octay, Chile — We stayed at a charming place that raised sheep and lavender, cool roof, too. And always a volcano around the corner.
