|Detail of Spiral, 6' x 6', Acrylic on Collage|
In memory of Bob Landry, the father of Bob, Chris, Peter, and Liz, husband to Elaine. He was a painter and taught me how to paint with oils - my first oil painting teacher. I was 11 and he was patient, kind, and funny. It was a kindness I always remembered and took with me - a fellow artist in a land of not so many artists. One of my tribe, one of my Gurus.
He passed unexpectedly yesterday and all I can think is, "May I become able to help all beings." In gratitude for the love and compassion shown to me, "May I become able to help all beings."
A small yellow moth has been living in our house for several days. I took the moth outside today.

August 20, 2017 Yesterday I reworked the spiral I thought I would cover w/ collage. Instead, I responded to what is already there. Today - small drawing on dictionary/grass paper - not so good.
