In Awe of Authors - Lydia Davis


In Awe of Authors
Oil on Wood
20"X16"

Authors paint pictures with words. And in the case of Lydia Davis, sometimes with just a sentence or two she writes a whole story that hits one right between the eyes.  
"Varieties of Disturbance," an inspired title in itself, has a fly on its white on white cover, perhaps referencing the twelve word story, "Collaboration with Fly." Or maybe it's meant to be just a fly on the wall of life, which is all any of us are in the end. Just seeing it on my bookshelf reminds me to pay attention.

Weathering the Storm with Words


Weathering the Storm with Words
Oil on Wood
20"X16"

Rain has been falling for days, and despite the advent of daylight savings time, it has been dark and cold inside and out.  Nothing like encouraging words to lift the spirit and warm the chill.

First Friday - Daffodils at the Dipsea 
Oil on Wood
12"X12"

Our friend Pam gathered us up, one by one, over her last years, a bouquet of women whom she loved and who loved her. First Friday breakfasts at the Dipsea Diner. We laugh, we cry, we tell stories. She is with us in her absence. Epic. Today was no exception.

Friends brought flowers from their garden. We talked, laughed, ate well, and relished the moment. The good feeling lingers even now, a welcome ray of light in a dark world.

New life where fire raged, 4 months later, with a little rain and a lot of sunshine.

Miraculous.
