See More (2011)

I’m about to start a year of intensive video work, so reviewing some past creations this morning.


Sweet Spot (2015)

I like it when the water almost scalds me.
I cower at the cold.
Right in the middle is a sweet spot.
It’s so sweet that the sweetness is lost.
Then I scald myself.

The soft lines meet the hard edge
Fall to the Reds and turn to back to earth
It’s a matter of time
The soft will envelop the hard
We won’t see it

Let’s Garden (2015)

Sketch for an upcoming painting. Tomorrow morning I will photograph this with models and AstroTurf pieces. Sunday, I will start painting. It’s always exciting for me to start slipping the paint on after the initial vision has been laid out. I’ll keep posting the progress. HAPPY NEW YEAR!/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9a2/13650392/files/2015/01/img_4210.jpg
