Pebbly With Stars
Pebbly With Stars

This painting was inspired by a favorite poem: Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it, but while I drink, I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. It’s current slides away, but eternity remains. I would drink deeper, fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars. Thoreau Watercolor 22 x 30.

The fissures are one of the things I enjoy about the beautiful boulders that make up the cliffs on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Watercolor 30 x 22.

Abstract art isn't simply a lack of realism. It's rather a heightened depiction of what the subject really is.
