bemusing musings of a bewildered brush-wielder

day two on beer and fiddle

So, a simple post today. Here is day two of my little painting of the beer and the fiddle.

In other news, tomorrow is my first day of classes at the Riverhead Maximum Security Correctional Facility.  I’m very excited, and I’ll admit, a bit nervous.  I’m not worried about any physical injury or anything.  I am moreso anticipating the difficulty of seeing these lives, these people that are locked away from the rest of the world.  I hope that I’ll be able to bring something good into their lives.

You know, I really love doing still life paintings, and I’ve come realize that I paint them for a reason.  When something is on my mind, I find solace in playing the violin, painting the violin, and enjoying the light coming through the glass, refracting things behind it.  A simple and healthy refuge for my mind.

    Generous of time, skills, talent and your humanity, you don’t surprise me any more, especially after our walk and talk. Wise beyond your years. May these folks receive in the spirit you so freely give.
