404 Page Not Found

Ah, the error code.  In attempting to complete a link, an error occurs, the page has been removed but the link to the non-existent remains.  As an extension of [/life in the Matrix], it makes sense…a logical foray into …huh.  Exactly.   How does one paint that?

The older I get the more I suspect that the world around me, that wider world I hear about, but only see through some sort of technological distribution, is not what I have lived.  So, though my inclination is to paint what I someday might want someone to hang over the sofa – – a nice figurative piece perhaps?  –While writing this, I must admit, I’m told I’m given to be a bit “chatty.”  My friends are compelled to set aside an hour to say “hello.”–  But no, I’m given to paint, as if I were speaking – sceptical-ly, with a dash of humor.

I am a total fan of the long look at art.  Any art, whether technically proficient or crudely scribed can speak.  If you’re looking for a real statement about each piece, this is the wrong place for direction beyond the work itself.   Except, that generally, I enjoy using inanimate objects to represent everyman (a gender free designation). And, then sometimes the title of the piece can be instructive.  Enjoy.
