Summer Evening Fields
oil on canvas 24" x 28"
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Lucky are the painters in this world for they tend to agree with the second way of living - walking about, enamored with small miracles at every turn. How else to go back every day and fight the good fight with shadow and light; warmth and coolness; shape and space; all to be discovered as one abandons objective knowledge and leaps into the unknown - accepting the confrontation at the end with the recorded evidence. One must be in love with the chaos and chance, the poetic visual incident based on seeing; the not knowing. My gosh it is a rollicking adventure! Enjoy!
