Elbow’s Hill

I finally went to the top of “our” (elbow and I) hill today. I miss her but will love another doggie when she comes to me.

the life of the grass

This is the kind of thing I am thinking of now. I dont know where it will go. Often the imagery is in a nebulous place first. I want to focus on grasses and maybe the minimalist quality, contrast of land and sky, but yet the evidence of the life of the grass through the snow is where it begins.

The twelfth day of the twelfth month of 2012 and my birth date

Life dormant within this tree against the early morning sky. I had a cup of coffee and looked at the day. Misty early morning Although we are overwhelmed with projects, we had time to put up a few lights. Joy to the world. Morning was working on grading in my library. I love my library its so snuggly. And full of books, paints, sketch materials, odds and ends, items. A reflection of the inside of my brain. I was so happy to finish making my new sketch journal today and I will be able to take it to New England. At around three, I went for a walk with Elbow. The sun is just setting behind my house. The second tree in from the left is the tree in the first picture. There is a duck swimming in this pond if you can see it. We walk up the left side of the pond and then up on top of the hill. I love the very top. We can see for miles. Elbow loves to run down the hill. Every tiny thing has such beauty in the world. Even though its into December, this verdant new growth is sprouting out of the hay bales. The evening light on top of the hill is amazing.

Thinking about grasses

Its always such a whoosh when I finish a major work. I am thinking about grasses now. New research to begin.

I am thinking of grass as one of the oldest semi complex plant forms. It will exist after we are all gone. And existed before, also.

Ice-covered Cattails

This was taken outside Troy, New York, during the Ice Storm last year. I am thinking of the way Nature’s creations are presented to us daily, each with a particular light and sensibility

Views at the Hill

Here is a picture of the red barn at the bottom of the hill by my house,  as seen from the road I walk on to my studio. My studio is past this, turn a corner onto the road below, and walk back to just below my house at the bottom of the hill.  Because of this, every time I walk from the house to the studio there are new things to see and new things that enter the work.  I have found, over the years, that I am deeply rooted in time and place. I can work in any place; but whatever that place is, it becomes embedded in the visual syntax.
