In The Absence Of All Else

#107 – Tuesday April 2nd

It’s a banner season for wildflowers, making it very difficult to stay focused in the studio. I hear the call, go you foolish fellow, get outside NOW! So out I go. I spend the day wandering the mountains near by, or in the garden adding and subtracting, until well past sundown when the cool spring desert air demands more than a simple t-shirt. Oddly enough, once back in the studio and after being drenched in exploding brilliant color, the new canvasses are devoid of all but a smattering of pale reds and yellows.  So for this spring Tuesday it’s flowers, a garden construct, and the smattering of pale yellow.
