January 2017

We step gingerly into the new year, some nursing hangovers, others stretching after a long winter’s sleep. Really nothing has changed but we arbitrarily mark the passage of time. This year, again, we had to add a second, a catch-up moment.

Pour commencer cette nouvelle année, j’ai déjcidé de faire une étude en prévision d’une plus grande peinture. Cette photo ne semble pas capter ce que je vois. Une scène de la forêt en hiver évoque la tranquillité et la paix.

But beyond the serenity and peace, the shadows reach out to me, proclaiming the effect of light on form. Our days are lengthening and the sun begins its climb to summer. Shadows will become more dramatic. Light creates darkness. What does darkness do to light? It sullies it at the very least.

Les ombrages sont le résultat de lumière sur les objets places devant. Quels sont nos obstacles , nos coins négatifs? Qu’est-ce qui m’a empêcher  d’être dans un état de paix aujourd’hui?

Truly negativity can run interference with my promotion of peace in my day. Maybe tomorrow we will resist being drawn in.
