The skies on the 12th of January provided a grand pallet.
The sky provides me with images and dreams.
But it is people drive my creative soul. Jan. 14th at Safeway. I was struck by this young women what a marvelous look.
While at the market I also made a quick portrait of one of the Pharmacy staff. This nurse gives pain free injections and is a pleasure to talk with.
Downtown Olympia Christmas shopping and fooling around. Sort of silly but aren’t we all a bit silly.
I met this man on a misty morning stroll. He was parking where I was walking as he got out of the car I asked can I sit in your car to tie my shoes? Laughing he said sure it is hard to get down there isn’t it. He is making neighborhood maps I have a map of my neighborhood. We met on November 28th last year.
The storm door light table. I have used windows and doors to view my transparencies and negatives. Tracing, outlines all of us artists make what we need to create.
Life continues to layer into abstract creations today from downtown Olympia. Layered Life a portfolio I have been shooting for nearly thirty years some with a subject in Victorian cloths layered against modern buildings.
Be well my friends. peace
Another wet gray day it is hard to see Christmas today or this week. More like March and with that
“when will the rain stop feeling.” No one says New Normal very much lately. A recent search for a 1998 transparency yielded these images. Smiles sent to you to see through the gray malaise this season. peace joy color love.
From my Norwich days a couple of a very red Amaryllis
Perhaps not technically my best work but I love red and perhaps a bit of influence O’Keefe figures into my mind.
Old Orchard Beach Maine as a child summer meant a trip to Portland and the beach.
Summer 2000 or there about The Florence Griswold Museum great place to breath in creative air inside and on the grounds.
The International Fly In Moosehead Lake Maine mid eighties with Bob.
Autumn in New England most likely Ct. Bright young Maples
Back to Old Orchard a nineties trip with my daughter. It was a fun vacation for us two.
Chris Torkelson who was a great advocate for train travel, his daughter looking out the window of the owners private sleeper car. We were headed to Brattleboro Vt. and the excursion was sold out so we rode in style.
TEDs a staple of growing up UCONN or not growing up at all. I prefer option two. Today a visit from Nathen Hale Ale Brewery. March 1989 the previous days snow continues to melt. If I remember correctly there was more snow to come.
May we all come together to share love, kindness and peace Always
