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. I am, however, here every day painting. I'm NO LONGER offering framed prints. My supplier is also closed indefinitely. The shipping or pickup of original paintings purchased online can safely be done without customer contact, so I'm encouraging you all to buy art if you can afford to do so. I'll make sure it gets to you quickly. Thanks for all your support.
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.
