when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

Feeding Geese

This acrylic on canvas piece is 10"x12". It is a color study which I am quite pleased with.There is a mystical quality to the little boys in each environment.
Those little boys are 20 years older than the model photo boys now. In the mid 1980s these little boys moved into the most secure home they had ever lived in all their 5 and 3 years. We were on the edge of a corn field and one morning were awakened by a cacophony of wild geese honks. Wiley still in his crocheted night cap grabbed a bag of cereal from his Uncle B. and planted himself in the middle of the flock and threw handfuls. Little brother Avi walked around the edge of the excitement,not too happy to meet birds which were as tall as he was.
Remember it as if it were yesterday

Naked Sunday

On a naked Sunday, a woman works in her poppy garden.
