How I wish, how I wish you were here We're just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl Year after year - from Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here
Another painting inspired by the gorge, but this one tiny. Back to the trees and lessons learned from Brian Rutenberg. Inspired by the odd aspen grove found in the forest, along with the strangely dressed trees covered in pale lichens and mosses. And always, the reminder of fires and resilience.
Perhaps Pink Floyd is an odd choice for titling an abstracted landscape painting. But maybe we are all feeling a bit of these lyrics during this holiday season - missing those we would normally gather with and the feeling of being surrounded by those we love.
Here at malarkey central, the youngest is preparing to leave the nest and begin his life in Seattle, while those far and near shelter in place instead of coming together for our usual boisterous game nights and late night frivolity. A big house will seem larger yet - but wait! Does that mean more room for flinging paint? Perhaps Wonder Mike will. finally get his own room...
And now, to get your Monday started right - a little remix of Pink Floyd, done in a lovely way.
