This is another little experiment in acrylic collage on gessoed watercolor paper. Hearts have been a theme for several of these paintings. Following the disastrous fires in this area, the heartbreak in my hometown is palpable everywhere you turn.

This seems a fitting piece to show today after seeing the incredible destruction of theses terrible fires.

The best part is this… I stand by the tall oak over by the barn taking photos of the setting sun. I can hear an inevitable rustle amongst the dead, dry leaves. The varmint is just behind me gathering acorns, no doubt.
I realize I can zoom 10 times closer than he knows and sure enough, I spied him about 7 feet away. When I’d zoom, he’d go quiet and watch me with one eye my camera could find. He was a little doll.
Still brings a smile, these crazy critters that seem to follow me around! Could it be?
If a real live buyer with wads of cash came along, maybe, but I cannot see it. A morning that looks like this is what I seek.Read More
Spring is my favorite time of year. Here we are galloping quickly into summer but I’ll hang on to it as long as I can! Especially after a very wet, blustery, long winter where I live in usually sunny California.
