Nagging Doubt

Oil on canvas, 6″ x 6″.

The Calm Cool Face of the River

Thank you, Aurora Sentinel

and writer Adam Goldstein for the nice write-up of my monotype show at Red Delicious Press. It was a much more generous use of ink than I was expecting. You spelled my name right, and everything after that is icing on the cake.

To those who think I may be squirrelly: You may be right, but press releases are well worth the twenty minutes it takes you. I am no worshipper of Mammon:

 

But neither do I want to hide whatever feeble light I may possess under a bushel.

The Prayer

Monotype, 22″ x 15″.

This monotype is one of twenty-one brand new monotypes that I’m currently showing at Red Delicious Press. I am grateful to Dave Wyzenbeek, Lisa Kerns, Susan Vaho, and Joe Higgins for the myriad of help they provided that allowed me to put up this show. I don’t think there are many open hours, and I don’t know ¬†how many people will see this show. I don’t really care.

 

What I do care about – what elates me – is that my son is returning from ThemiddleofnowheregodforsakenNebraska to the greater Denver Metro area this week.

I don’t really know how to pray, but if I did I would think my prayer had been answered. We don’t have any fatted calves in the freezer, but we do have a really nice leg of lamb begging to be stuffed with sun dried tomatoes and spices and put to spin on the rotisserie. My heart swells.

 

Take off

One of the new monotypes I’ll be showing at Red Delicious Press.

Show opens this Friday, October 12, reception 6 – 8 PM.
