Right around Christmas time, ah what a thing to view the American pastoral from the moon on a cold day with a warm fake fire.

It is nice to show playfulness. I tried to capture this and don't know if i was successful- there are supposed to be two people in this painting. 9x12 oil on paper.

helping hands

Sometimes there are images that need a place like a fanciful line that needs a poem. I had an idea for this image and liked a few pictures i had hanging around so as to help me bring this idea to life. Many hands assisting in the lowering of a bucket to the depths of a near empty pool strikes a pleasant cord for me.

Leaving the ground has always fascinated me. Seeing a postcard in a bookstore that was very make believe led me to this painting. I think this is maybe a happy painting of the husband/father going only off to work in a 1950's sort of fantastic future reality. 12x16 oil on paper. I added an out of ground pool because it was summer when this was painted.
