oil on canvas 24x24
There was that time when life seamed so innocent. I bike ride to no place in particular by ones self, sleep underneath tall eucalyptus without a care and watch clouds meandering overhead. Even the possibility of rain, who cares! It was a La Dee DA time, wasn't it? Tell me it was.
This is what I wanted to capture. I wanted to feel innocent again even for a moment.
This will be in this summers show in Laguna Beach CA

24X24 oil on canvas
There comes that time when one has to see what is down that road. It is hard to say no to that calling. Leaving can be a challenge but, with blue skies ahead and endless possibilities, the moment has come to say goodbye to the old and say hello to a new journey. In painting this, I too went on a journey. I wanted to express the vastness of life, the scale of the boy to the barn and the lands before him. It took a long time for me to feel what I wanted to convey, and like the boy, I ventured out and feel I have achieved that goal.
This painting is available and will be at this summers Laguna Beach Festival of Arts in Southern California.
