This, the first day of fall
signals the closing of summer: vacation house, bathing suits, convertibles, and playthings.
It opens up autumn: a tranquil beach, crispy days, dry sun, and the approaching rainbow of leaves.
A sad good-bye
A happy welcome.
Pulitzer Prize winning composer, jazz musician, teacher, and author Gunther Schuller died this June 21, 2015, to Beethoven's Ode to Joy that played by his deathbed. He combined classical and jazz in his compositions and performances and coined the term “Third Stream” for music that incorporated elements of both.
I had the pleasure of meeting him and doing this portrait for a project a number of years ago. Besides being a multi-talented person, he was a wonderfully pleasant and respectful gentleman.
That time of year again. Recitals. When babies take a bow. A showcase of little ones in tutus and tiaras. One goes one way, one goes another... Some collide. Petals fly. Nothing in sync but their levels of adorable. Pastel "Simone's Bow" 24" x 18" Commission [Texas]
Little painting - BIG meaning. On the sands of our beach: 2 military men stand at attention. A band plays. A cannon fires. A wreath is put out to sea. Honor for men and women who lost their lives serving our country. A poignant moment. A Memorial Day. [West Beach, Beverly Farms, MA] Pastel, 5x7, $75.
