My storefront studio at 203 Prospect Street is now open by masked appointment. I'm also happy to hang paintings you'd like to preview on the front window wall and step outside while you view them (or you can view them at your convenience through the window). I'm doubtful that I'll have my space open for art walks or group exhibits for a very long time.
an unhurried meditation on bits of landscape and air
Whoever you may be: step into the evening.
Step out of the room where everything is known.
Whoever you are,
your house is the last before the far-off.
With your eyes, which are almost too tired
to free themselves from the familiar,
you slowly take one black tree
and set it against the sky: slender, alone.
And you have made a world.
It is big
and like a word, still ripening in silence.
And though your mind would fabricate its meaning,
your eyes tenderly let go of what they see.
