"Feeling the Heat"

"Feeling the Heat", 5 x 7" oil

This sunny painting makes me want to soak up and hoard color like Leo Lionni's Frederick the Mouse, the little guy who stored memories of rays of color to be used during the cold dark days of winter.

Fairmount Fury

"Fairmount Fury" Oil, 12 x 12"

A City Sunset

Across the roof-tops of the town
I saw the flaming sun go down;
For some, another day of tears
Lay buried in the hurrying years.

The shadows folded; here and there
A yellow light began to flare.
For some, another golden day
Of gladness sped upon its way.
