I think I have to try everything at least once. I used to do silkscreen prints when I had a bigger studio but all that is behind me. I even (and I do kick myself for this) gave my Gocco machine to the Goodwill in a fit of downsizing. But I found out you can make a faux silkscreen in your photo program which is what the above image is. I'm heralding spring here.
I shot this photo yesterday. Spent a long while staring into a toasty fire. From my vantage point I could watch the rain come down and down and down, so cold and wet. The studio was very cozy.
My stencilled wall. Calling up the spring bulbs. I know they are coming. I can feel them stirring.
In the meantime, lots of ice cream. This always cheers me. I ate this bowl yesterday.
I found this photograph of John taken when he was a little boy. Such an earnest, sweet demeanor. We're cleaning out boxes and the photos keep turning up. All the stages of our lives spread out before us.
Today's bowl of ice cream with Pilar's strawberry jam. Thank you, girlfriend. Your gift reminds me of you daily. More ice cream happiness.
And one last shot of the little philosopher. So young and already carrying the world's troubles on his narrow shoulders.
