Late in the Day

Late in the Day
Oil on Wood
Another rally late in the day. 
It helps to walk with a good friend. Mutual admiration mixed with exercise and sunshine was a good start to the day.
As was happening upon Holland Cotter's inspired review of John Heliker, 'A Tribute" in today's New York Times. Especially his final line:
"Heliker’s late paintings have a conversational quality too, not relaxed but poised, the way art can be after years of practice, when habit hides effort."
"...when habit hides effort." I love that.
And "...conversational quality..." That strikes a chord. Art is a conversation. Speak up.
