A Bridge In Time (#21-06)

I created this painting from a photo my son took during a recent visit to Ireland. It moves me — as often happens when I see such a sentinel of time — that this small footbridge remains after bearing witness to centuries of events. Faithfully doing its job, each rock still laid where it was placed by the original builder. Heavy palette knife and brush stroke texture on this 24×18 oil on canvas original.

Forty Past Five (#21-01)

As a year, 2020 wasn’t all bad, to be sure. But there was plenty of stress and misery to go around. Before we turned the calendar to 2021, and with it the hope for better days to come, we had one final sunset on December 31, 2020. It occurred at 5:40. This painting is a nod to the various emotions I felt as the sun set on 2020, and looked forward to the sun rising on a new day, a new year, and what lies ahead. “Forty Past Five.” 36×36 oil on canvas.
