Vaux Swifts at Chapman School

The swifts are back in town.
I did the following sketch last year while watching them swirling down for their nightly rest (or an eternal rest as it were for one hapless swift that fell victim to the talons of a hawk perched upon the threshold).


















Later painted it up in the studio.
It's not my intention generally to show finished paintings on this blog. I have a website for that. But I don't often paint from sketches and I thought the comparison might be interesting.

A tree near my day job.
Nice tree.
Bad job.

Magic Portals

As a child I imagined and longed for a magic portal through which I could enter another world. Now that I'm an adult I know that magic portals exist only as a means for other worlds to enter ours.

Everyone's doing it...

Since everyone and their evil twins seem to have a blog I thought I might see what all the fun and fuss is.
Here's a picture.
Fire. I love fires.

So what is this BLOG all about? Who knows. Who cares. I'll just put stuff up now and then, or I won't. We'll see what happens. Or Only I will. Probably no one will ever know. Perhaps I will never tell anyone. That might be kind of amusing.
