Clearing, Making Way

Copernicus, Oil on canvas, 24x36, SOLD

Solstice, Oil on canvas, 20x26, SOLD

Lahaina, Oil on canvas, 40x30, SOLD

Pecos, Oil on canvas, 14x11, SOLD

Since I haven't been able to find my way back into
the studio I am doing what I do when I know
the alchemical cauldron is busy cooking up the new.
I am clearing out the old. These paintings are the
way I used to work, very textural and atmospheric.
I decided to send pictures to my list of collectors,
many of them owners of this sort of work and offer them
for 1/2 the price I had them listed at. To my surprise and
joy they all sold within 12 hours. Today I will be packing
them up. It feels wonderful to send them on there way.
I will only have one piece left from that period, my favorite,
one I don't care if I ever sell.
Zao's Garden, 48x36, Oil on canvas, $2200

I have gone through my house getting rid of things
that I don't need or are no longer precious (not
including these paintings). I am feeling lighter
all the time. I have always loved this process,
clearing and making way for the new.

Happy February all!
