New Work: The Landscape

Random Thoughts: I'm trying to keep my chin up these days....and continue making art, despite the economy and struggle with art sales. I'm not alone out there, so I know we're all in the same boat. It's hard, though...thinking of winter coming, the cold...the bills that seem to increase despite the lack of increase with income! There are those who are worse off, though...and I continue to give thanks that I've gotten up in the morning, Pooh the dog is still with me and has another day too; that I have paints, good friends, a roof overhead, and that the car will crank (we hope). So, pensive thoughts aside, here is a small landscape, now framed...and more sculpting projects percolating...I've now come up with the "Sentinels", tall figures standing silent, peaceful. What do you think?

"I get up every morning determined to both change the world and to have one hell of a good time. Sometimes, this makes planning the day difficult." ~ E.B. White


  1. The simple things keep us going, do they not? I like the quote by White. Our vet bills are putting us in the red most every month. I try and keep it simple: turn the horses out in the far pasture, scoop up loose hay. And I have one class out of several that inspires. I try and keep it simple, too. Keep your chin up.

  2. Thanks, Jack! As long as we can buy food for our four-legged friends, we're OK. Belt tightened, chin up...simple always in mind and life! : )
