small paintings and Dick's

Delivered three small paintings yesterday for a show in Edmonds, WA. A beautiful, sunny day and a quick lunch at my old favorite, Dick's Drive In. Wow! I just found a website for Dick's complete with old music. CLICK HERE.

Robert Frosty?

I wanted this to be another painting from the words of “The Road Not Taken” but it just kept looking like frost. Then, I received a comment on my last post from TJ. She referred to another poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” which fits this better but maybe I was just thinking of Robert Frost(y).

in a yellow wood

Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Not Taken" has had special meaning for me for many years. Recently, my 10 year old grandson memorized it for school. I was impressed and motivated to remember it for myself. I wondered if an old dog (me) could learn a new trick. I did it! Today, as I was attempting to find my way through this abstracted landscape, the words of the poem came back to me as inspiration.
