We are approaching summer solstice and I bring you a clear winter eve at Sugarloaf. This painting is part memory of walking to the car after watching a day of Ilka racing, waiting for Finn to finish some pick up hockey at the nordic center, and part inspiration from photographers Steve Fuller and Cory Ransom. Each has captured this great mountain in their own inimitable way. It is also part encouragement from a wonderful couple who continue to collect my work and own this painting. I hope it brings you a little slice of contentment/quiet/peace and you see the beauty in winter.
THIS PAINTING IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AS A PRINT
SEE THIS AND OTHERS IN THIS LIMITED PORTFOLIO.
It has been so long since I've been in touch
Where has time gone?
West to see
my beautiful daughter.
South to sit with my son
To the island to launch summer's float
And to the landing
to launch our boat.
But time also takes.
Harve, you were such a dear man
and Lynn has overwhelming sadness--
the overdose of her son
and you took her Mom too?
We can be frozen in time.
We missed it.
We wait for a new day.
A brighter day.
Seize the day.
Seize each moment.
Seize each day.
But when you are in that moment,
that moment of seizing time,
should you let happiness OR sadness overcome you.
knowing it is better than missing it?
should you wipe away your fears
to grasp the here and now?
My work is currently being featured in an on-line gallery at mainecottage.com/galllery.html
