He was a skinny old man.

First thing I say every morning

Before my feet hit the floor

I'm calling out,

"Praise the Lord, oh my soul."

 

I see his long, bony legs,

Knees knobby under the nightshirt,

The floor cold beneath his feet.

 

"All that is within me

I continue to be saddened by the loss of Cynthia Layne.  What a voice (can still hear her voice alone, but that is no way the whole of her.)

After dodging three candidates for Governor, I escape to the studio.  Here is a fine, sway-backed, highly improbable table.  Liked how the hues worked in “Kept It Simple”; here they are again.  While the cup from “Fait Dodo” is all but gone, the composition stole some...

The words of “Fait Dodo”, (an old French lullaby which my mother sang to me, I to my children

and they to theirs) are hidden in the graphite writing to be seen along the upper edge of this piece.  When unsure of a word or two, I asked my daughter for help, and she re...

Silly little thing

Of inconsequential matters.

Yesterday, while listening to the CD “Yo-Yo Ma and Friends”, I heard Amelia Brown, the remarkable Indianapolis contralto, sing out, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna make it shine”, --- of course, the paint responded.  Amelia is a friend of mine.  (Amelia is your f...

So what’s new? Well, yesterday we caught the weekly van- ride to the grocery store, PO, Bank,    what have you.  (At 91 and 87, neither of us drives anymore) Paintings dry slowly in a Maine winter, which is cold and humid.  No matter what the colors say, winter is on t...

From the Preface to Finding Your Way:

 

     When the photographer Jacob Katz was in Guatemala, two little girls of the village adopted him.  Every afternoon, as he returned from a shoot, they ran to him, their eyes dark with excitement: What had he done? where had he go...

So many artists live here that our residential Inn, Dirigo Pines, is having a show of our work in October.  My studio walls are covered with wet canvasses, so I am loaning Song of the Dingy (our “above the couch” piece).  We will miss it –it wears well.
