                                                    6X6inch oil on panel

Not sure how I came by this photo or how long I've had it, the only thing I knew is it spoke to me,  thus I had to paint it.  I remember traveling across this great country seeing small towns like this, the simplicity of a time gone by.  Now we are in an age of fake news being shouted at us.  Friends, and families disagreeing with a division like a chasm in a landscape growing wider.  So!  i painted this, hopefully not in memory of bygones, because just on the horizon one can still see trust, faith, love, caring and hope.

So folks, lets make it happen.

First off, the joy of going down to meet the waves, listen to its sounds, smell the air and just the fact of being, is a joy.  So after hours of letting my mind wander I picked up my iPhone taking one picture was all that was needed, I had my next painting.  This along many more will be in the Festival of arts this summer.
