The Neighbors' View


The Neighbors' View · oil  · 10 x 8 · NFS

Sad for us our neighbors of two years moved last summer to Washington, DC. This little view from their back porch just catches a small view to the far shore of the Sakonnet River. I have ratcheted down the intensity of the photo reducing the glare from fresh juicy paint. As soon as it's cured enough, off she goes to join our friends in their new home in Alexandria - a little remembrance of a brief tour of duty at the Naval War College and life in our cozy neighborhood.

Postings will continue now on a more regular basis after a surprisingly hectic fall. Included in the fray has been a lot of experimenting with a pattern drawing method known as Zentangle©, getting reacquainted with my old profession of Hand Lettering and teaching a few small classes, painting abstract works in acrylic, water colors and pigmented cold wax sticks (not all at once) and practicing the art of painting with a palette knife. I will show these from time to time as the spirit and schedule invites. With Halloween behind us, this melodramatic presidential campaign will at last be overwith in a week. Looking forward to celebrating and with relief. Meanwhile, thank you for taking a look at my painting and posting.
