A Silver Thread

A Silver Thread

A Silver Thread A silver thread glimmers in the distance; a tiny reflection in a vast space of unknown rock mazes and labyrinths that remain possibly nameless and certainly without people. Perhaps for entire seasons, these canyons remain empty and out of reach; no...

A meditation.

A meditation.

A meditation. Color. So undiluted and pure and punctuating that one can nearly taste it on the very tip of their tongue. Hue. Swimming with complexity, gently tinting the light as it swirls invisibly around the room, leaving a delicate glow in the air, staining...

I painted over a painting, today.

I painted over a painting, today. Today, I painted over a painting. It happens from time to time; I recycle a piece to create something better. Typically, I will paint over something that just never ended up being successful in my mind. It fell short of an idea or...
