Cow Amongst The Mustard 2

Cow Amongst the Mustard
Oil on Canvas
8"X8"
SOLD
A word about music. I would be completely adrift without it. This morning, Edward Aldwell playing J.S. Bach, The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II. Calming, complex, deep, energizing all at once. Like a good, strong cup of aromatic coffee with sugar and heavy cream. Or a big blue/black cow in a soggy Spring Sonoma field surrounded by bright yellow mustard.

Kindness in a Cup

Kindness in a Cup
Oil on Canvas

SOLD
Yesterday when Rosie and I returned from our morning walk, there at my door was a ceramic cup holding a polka dot paper heart that said:
"For Susan -- Mornings are more beautiful when this is full of coffee or tea. Love, Pam."
I've left the cup on the counter, a constant reminder of the power of little gestures of love and caring that cancel out all the world's ugliness in one fell swoop.

No photographs were used in the creation of this painting. It took a long time, numerous overpaintings, and plenty of angst. Not sure any of us are better off. But I said I would so I did. Now for those bigger brushes...
