A couple of new paintings for spring

The colors outside are intoxicating. My current work seems to be more free and less angular, maybe it’s the softness of spring.  

The first painting was created from a sketch of my backyard in early morning. Later while painting in the studio I was listening to John Prine‘s ‘My Darlin’ Hometown’, from his most recent (2005) CD, ‘Fair & Square’. That prompted me to steal a title from him……with apologies. I love all types of music and Prine falls into the mix for his humor, sensitivity to the human condition and just plain good song-writing. Here’s a review of his recent performance in Carmel, CA.
