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.
