Small and Medium Paintings
6/30/23 From my Taos Studio – Completed “CLOUD PEOPLE” last week to a few ooohs and aaahs! Am always happy when a painting turns out the way I hoped it would! Today varnishing, signing and framing all the new small pieces pictured on my easel. The 24”x36” painting above is getting a new coat of many colors with a few wild asters in the foreground.

“I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are Strangers in their birthplace. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he feels he mysteriously belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle among scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest.”
– W. Somerset Maugham THE MOON AND SIXPENCE
