I have been thinking of painting Ships for years. (However, I always felt I'd need a studio overlooking the river where I could paint the real thing in real time...and in unobserved comfort. How spoiled is that!) Now I am thinking of painting Trains, thanks to my railway-obsessed son. Transport, industry, structure, system, movement, landscape, the past, yearning for far-away places...old things...broken down things...dirty things...loved things...A sense of time and speed very different from that evoked by computers today.
...Why does the inside of that big train car remind me of an art gallery?
I make art. I earn most of my money in other ways, and am busy with other projects. As long as I can have those occasional moments of blissful creation, am in an occasional show, and occasionally sell art to people who treasure it as much as I love making it, I am content. This blog offers glimpses into what I'm doing right now.
