New Tray

Work was halted to document this rather elegant arc.

The bottom layer of brown is liquid.

The paradox of "Action" painting was that it ended as a static image.

Puddles of liquid paint should be enough to fuel the imagination.

What did Pollack see when he gazed into the paint cans in his studio?

August Sunlight

Here in January
it is worth considering

a lily from August 2010

Realities plunge in silence by . . ."

6-second collage #

Upon opening the New Yorker today
noticed an uncanny echo of my Virgin Mary post
of a couple days ago.

There's something about a snake
and a pretty girl
I suppose.

I have sampled a small portion of the whole photograph
(2008 by Tina Barney: "Family Commission with Snake")

but the comparison resonates with the whole.

The snake is a free-floating element
with everything else in the picture.

We are floating in space!

Then we return to forever.

Merry Snakesmas

This little event card
printed in Italy in 1971
is a funeral announcement.
It's such a nice little image of the Virgin Mary.

But why is she standing on a snake?

I've been thinking of Mary


wondering why she didn't just say

Thank you.
I prefer to remain
