As I was destroying what I had judged as an unsuccessful painting, I noticed a completely different and interesting picture developing on the table top with the torn edges forming a white lace holding the parts together like a net.

Can you hear Maw calling for the “tribe” to come in for dinner?

Evening Looking East

Exiting our down town Post Office one evening, I saw the glorious colors of the setting sun reflected in the several glass buildings. I immediately set about to express that time of day with one typical building, tall and stately wearing its gleaming apparel.
Silence of Night

Realizing that the snow itself seems to give off an aura of light, I didn’t use the usual dark shapes I use in my other night scenes. The snow as it falls seems to help the impression of mystery.
