Working on my solo show for Pleiades Gallery, May 4-28

While I have seen a marked deterioration of the seashore environment during my life, I seek out the beauty and favorite sites for expressing my art. I try not to think about the accumulating plastic, blackening of the sand and greening or muddying of the water, changes in seashore wind patterns, and large decline of fish populations that I have observed during my life. My postcards just arrived, and I am getting excited about presenting tidal visions from the point of view of an optimist.

If March comes in like a lamb, what will happen when it goes out?

My blueberries and peaches are flowering already. Are they going to make it this year? Durham’s last frost is typically mid-April. Aside from fruit worries and politics depression, I have been enjoying myself in my garage studio all winter. I will be having a solo exhibit at Pleiades Gallery in May, entitled, “Tidal Visions”, and I have finished more than half of the pieces for the show. In addition, we have a member group show opening this week titled “Water”, and I made the piece I have pictured here for that show. It is called “Great Salt Lake” and is based on a photo I took from a plane as it was landing in Salt Lake City.
