 The Landscape.

I had dreamed of loving.  I go on loving but love is no longer the bouquet of lilacs and roses imbuing with their fragrances a forest where a flame lies at rest at the end of undeviating pathways.

I had dreamed of loving.  I go on loving but love is no longer a storm whose lightening lays its funeral pyres on castles, disorientates, distorts, illuminates as it vanishes the parting of the ways. 

            It is the spark of flint beneath my footstep in the night, the word no dictionary in the worldhas translated, the foam on the sea, the cloud in the sky.

In growing old all things become rigid and luminous, boulevards without names and ropes without knots.  I feel myself stiffening with the landscape.

Trial and Error

originally this was supposed to be a figure piece inside of a tower with a single light source
building up the bricks - (at this point I am realizing how horribly depressing this painting is)

letting the light in and breaking down the wall

The figure needed to go and so did the ground.  Decided to reference my other piece here and add a white tree in water.  Much better.

Here's a step by step of one of my more recent pieces.  This one went through a lot of changes.  It's still not quite done yet, but sometimes you are just in the middle of a painting and feel the need to change everything - usually it's best to just go with it. 

In other news massive art update to happen soon.  3 weeks to go until the end.  I think I've slept about 7 hours total in the past 2 nights.  Major Stressin.
