November Art & Musings

"Sunset", Bonnie Joy Bardos 12" x 36"

November brings shorter days, a lengthening night...scarlet and yellow leaves cling to dark figures of trees in a pale evening mist. It's been a peaceful day here in the mountains. So, I've holed up inside with River dog who curls nearby, written a newspaper column and hit the 'send' button, eyed some art projects to get in progress. Always percolating, as I call it. On the easel, I've got a companion piece to this one called "Sunset" (sold): 12" x 36" makes for a long horizontal landscape, which piques the viewer's interest. This week, I'm hoping for another of my sculptures to be accepted in a juried show, so will keep you updated. Meanwhile, here are gleanings from Octavio Paz. The stars write. Are you looking up?

I am a man: little do I last
and the night is enormous.
But I look up:
the stars write.
Unknowing I understand:
I too am written,
and at this very moment
someone spells me out. ~ Octavio Paz, Brotherhood

Update: "Whirl" is on view at the 15th Regional Juried Show with Tryon Painters & Sculptors through December 19.

"Transcending" is in the sculpture exhibit at Tryon Fine Arts Center through this month.
