I love these, especially the 3rd one. They work beautifully as a group. I'm always intrigued by your colours and texture. I don't work in oils and rarely work on paper, so I'm not entirely understanding what I'm seeing. Do you use the lights of the paper, similar to what one might do with watercolours? Is your texture in your brushstrokes or are you cleverly utilizing the texture of the paper. Whatever it is you do, it's great and I'd love to hear about your process.

Tender like skin peeling from an old sunburn.

Demonstrating the irrationality of growth.
The beauty in naivetee'.
Realizing that we all have so much to learn is something we can call "wizzdom".
Realizing that there is always much to learn.
Striving for it.
Living thru it.

these speak volumes.

B well my distant friend.

it must be a beautiful song
sung with lots of love
smiling its way through the world
they are sentimental lovelies
some nostalgic dreamings
an endearing retelling of the way it is
the epitome of care love nurture & attention
looking at them sends me off smiling
and into that remembering state
we both know well

Quietly quietly out to play
under lettered skies and lawns.
Where every window path will lead
back to the door of home.

(I'm bigger than you)
