Cloud #21 - Boston Evening Star

Oil on paper, 5" square
This is an image I have worked and reworked many
times. It is the view from my studio (and after that,
my newborn daughter's room...) when I lived in
Boston in the 80's and early 90's. Like some figure
poses, there is something about the shapes in this
image that I find endlessly intriguing. I witnessed
many sunsets from this window, and I could prob-
ably do 25 more of these paintings and never get
bored, mining my memory for colors.
This was supposed to be a "daily painting", but
ended up being a "two-day daily painting" because
I needed to create two layers.
Thanks for visiting today.

Remember Cindy? She died. I was her friend.
In 1986, I bought (from you) a small painting of the view from your Boston window.
I still love it and have framed it with the simple majesty it deserves.
