Happy Summer Solstice! 2022

Happy Summer Solstice! Once I did this and exhibited a few of these at the Los Angeles College Art Association Exchange exhibition. As you can see, there is one original painting, with an adjacent print of the same work, and then a digital image. The set is titled “opening”.

Japan on Paper, small studies

Since covid has shut the world down from travel, these reference that experience of relying on memory and photographs and the wish to travel again. I wonder what lack of global exchange will do to us? 12 x 18″, oil on archival paper. Not all are titled. And they are not all dry yet. But sharing anyway ūüôā ‚ÄĒ with Kathryn_Arnold in San Francisco, California

New Painting. June 7, 2020

This one going out into the world, titled ‘ 2 summers ago’ (one of these images a detail…full size work around 61 x 84″) , didn’t think about it when determining the title but seeing experiencing metaphor (with the language/ nostalgia/ looking back ).

sf yesterday even though ‘opened up’ ghost town no traffic, very few people, and no one i know . Took walk around / i swear if one stays in one has no idea how the world is/ the news doesn’t quite do it although important.

Businesses boarded up, the dismal toll,

awareness the sadness and grief being expressed just down the street and all over the world overwhelming real, valid .

all within the field of the ongoing and increasing pandemic.

when i hear helicopters i want to duck and cover but there is nowhere to go.

it’s not the sf i used to know. but maybe it is/ just uncovered…
