I want to think like that...

Warm Twilight, 2009. oil on panel 16 x 16. sold.

The other night I was waiting with my sons for a train to pass and my oldest said, "Maybe the train is so late because the train man wanted to see the beautiful sky." I could only answer, "Maybe so..." because the sky was indeed beautful...

Blue Shy

Skylight, 2008. oil on panel 6 x 6. sold.

I think I have posted this painting before, but I'm happy to post it again and announce that this painting has been chosen to be used for a book cover of the book, Blue Shy. (This is a play on the word sky, not a typo.) The book designer knew my work from one of my galleries and thought that my work would fit perfectly with the writing style of the book. I am very flattered. I knew nothing about image copyright when I started this whole process, and it's been a very interesting ride. It kind of strange to think that one of my paintings is going to be used on a book cover. The book is going to press this month.
I'll post the cover when I get permission form the designer. I've seen it and I'm quite pleased.
