Purple Bench

Finally, I have started painting again. After driving from New York to Oregon in late September, Kay and I found a great house, unloaded our cube from New York, emptied my Portland storage unit, outfitted our house with the missing essentials, looked for and found jobs, and set up my painting, woodworking, and picture framing workspaces.

5 x 7 inches, oil on board.

This is an image from Old Bethpage Village, back on Long Island. I've posted several paintings of this neat place. If I livid here, I would take frequent breaks on this shady bench.

It feels really good to be painting and posting again.

Your first painting in the new studio is very beautiful. I like the way the light illuminates the path through the trees in this painting. It will be interesting to see where that path leads you. Keep painting and posting.

It's nice to see you are posting again! It suggests that all the turmoil from the cross-country move is diminishing. As a creature of habit, myself, I cling ever-more-tightly to my mantra: "Change is Bad!"

Welcome to your new 'old'.

I drive myself crazy...I've got to have everything more or less organized before I can start working. That's why it took so long. Not that the studio is really "finished". But it's workable. Thanks for noticing I'm back.

I really like this painting. The colors, light and atmosphere invites you into the painting. You want to sit on the bench after a stressful day and relax. Good to see new postings again and to hear that Portland life is moving forward.
