Full of Life Now

Full of life now, compact, visible,
I, forty years old the eighty-third year of the States,
To one a century hence or any number of centuries hence,
To you yet unborn these, seeking you.

When you read these I that was visible am become invisible,
Now it is you, compact, visible, realizing my poems, seeking me,
Fancying how happy you were if I could be with you and become your comrade;
Be it as if I were with you. (Be not too certain but I am now with you.)

- Walt Whitman

All in a day's work...



It's been a very long day of painting.     I'm tired, yet happy,
and hoping Jenny Greene will be happy too!

                Thanks Mom!

          Happy Mother's Day

An Enormous (although belated) Thank You!!!

The show in February was a lovely success!
Thanks to all my friends and good neighbors who helped me put this exhibition together.
Without all your wonderful and generous support, this would never have happened, and it certainly would not have been so fun.  Thank you so much :-)
 
Also a huge thanks to the Clearing Cafe for the wonderful opportunity to share my paintings with the neighborhood,  and the groovy party thrown in my honor as well.
It is my understanding that an awesome time was had by all.
Thanks!
