My storefront studio at 203 Prospect Street is closed indefinitely due to its status as a non-essential business during the COVID-19 'stay home' order. Framed prints will ship as long as my supplier is allowed to continue operations. Original paintings purchased online for either pickup at the studio or shipped to a US location will be deferred until the government understands I'm here alone and this is my only source of income and allows me to responsibly conduct business again. I will try to occasionally update my blog during this weird and crazy and uncertain 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.
