A Place to Sit 3

“Inspiration is highly overrated. If you sit around and wait for the clouds to part, it’s not liable to ever happen. More often than not, work is salvation.”
–Chuck Close

Dark Figure

The Dark Figure

A dark figure stands in a doorway peering into an empty room.   Who is he?  Why is he there?  What does he see?  What is he thinking?  These are all questions I ask myself when I am creating my images.



“All this time and it’s all still fresh to me – overwhelmed”
–from “Overwhelmed” by David Garza

Sometimes life can seem so overwhelming that all you want to do is curl up in a ball on the floor and pray that everything will just go away.

Stockings Hung by the Chimney with Care

Stockings Hung By the Chimney

’twasn’t quite the night before Christmas, but it was at night and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.  The only thing I wish was different – outside of it not being the night before Christmas and there was no St. Nick – is that we had a real wood-burning fireplace.  Oh well, it is still cozy and a great place to curl up with a nice hot drink – or one on the rocks  – and a good book.
