dinner...

My buddy Joe and I took a great hike today from Patterson Gap up toward Carter Gap, to check out a fire line the FS dug for a recent wildfire. I came upon the most beautiful mushrooms that I suspected were "chicken of the woods" or "sulfur shelf." From what I can find on the web, that's what it is, and I'm gonna cook it up in a few minutes and eat it (yum.....). So if you don't see a post for a few days...
Also gonna eat some yummy beans from my garden and a tiny cuke I picked early 'cause I really wanted one. This mushroom is so beautiful, I just had to share it.

today...

...another balance/bodies painting - better photo...

A few more...

...Solstice pics. I hadn't had a chance to look at them really. The one with the ring around the sun is raw from the camera - I only resized it. Pretty cool. Happy Summer!



Yesterday's...


I like this one pretty well, but still not as much as the earlier one. Sorry it's not a great photo of the painting, but you get the idea.

Bigger not better...


Well, I went bigger after the balance painting I liked so much, but wasn't so pleased with this one. I think it was around June 15...

Happy Solstice!

Went out to watch the sunrise this morning and, though it was a bit cloudy, it was beautiful. Now I must go out and see if I can catch the dolphins again - took a nice long walk within 50 ft of a large one yesterday...

Savannah

This morning I am in Savannah, at the home of my Dad's old friend, en route to St. Augustine later today. They have a wonderful rose garden and look out onto a marshy creek...

water

...been a while since i shot water out at the lake, so the other day i made a few pictures. I also experimented with taking out of focus shots to capture a different quality of light, but they didn't make it to the blog.

Two from today...



I don't know what I'm calling these yet, but I am feeling that they have to do with balance. I may work some more on the second one, as it still seems a little unresolved.

paint from today...

This is a study for some more pieces around water... I will also put up an earlier study from a few days ago that started in this direction. I might also post a detail of that one including the porch - just because i like the photo.

On an unbelievably hot day...

...this lady made an egg appear.



Well, I painted yesterday, but didn't really care for how it turned out. This lady produced something way more impressive - especially considering the heat. Too bad she was so scary.

one more...

One more study from today...


"abomination" (turtle egg and rattlsnake rattle) June 1, 2008 acrylic on masonite

back to work...

OK, I'm back from Atlanta for the foreseeable future and intend to paint regularly now. These two (I seem to be in a mode of doing two quick paintings of each arrangement - the first on masonite, second on wood) are of an object that I created several years back, when I lived in Brooklyn. It was an early piece in the beginning of an emerging theme in my work.
