Leaves, collected -

I went outside one day in November to find the front yard littered with brilliant clusters of
leaves, damp and stuck together by an early misty rain ...



Randomly scattered joy !
 A rich carpet, for sure.

 And why post now in the middle of the Christmas season?  
How could I wait until next fall ?

Warm and Sunny

    A gift in the fall, to come down to the water, for a breather.


as the sun sets the drama grows


                                                      Centerport Beach, what a treasure.

Snow Frieze -

             A history of storms laced with dirt, ice and sand -  

  a layering of neutrals

like a marble counter top.

Dramas play out, what did Whistler call them ?
      "harmonies" in gray, black and white ?
     Such applies.
             An unknown beast sleeping -

              A frog like creature and companion.                                                                  

                                                                  White capped waves -

                                                                      in a silent world.

NYC rainandsnow -

                                        blurry, moving, watery                                                     
rush then pause  
                                                                                         stop then go -                                       

                                                                    seek shelter

                                                                       stay inside.

NYC Behind Glass ...

                               The city from inside, looking out -

                                                                  Layered,  obscure, illuminated.

                                                               In the glittering city .

                                            The Chrysler Building peeks out, a jeweled crown ....
                                               Buildings seem thin, transparent like paper...

                                                      Or soft and tactile like chocolate.

                                        Farewell from the bus, on this 12th day of Christmas.

Transparent hues and reflecting panels...

          At the Morgan Library and Museum in NYC an installation by Spencer Finch,

          Transforming a clear glass cube into an environmental stained glass quilt.

      It doesn't look quite real, almost like a Photoshop experiment with colors and layers...

      A second look doesn't resolve it, as there are also clear glass panels hanging from the ceiling,
      moving, reflecting from all directions....

a delightful abstract world,
embedded with bits of reality, like collages ...

             Windows outside are turned into staccato patterns -

            Inside, jeweled treasures find a competing - or complementary? light.
