Windhover, Paul Taylor master class, Bohoy


Windhover.
Paul Taylor master class.

Modern, contemporary
We all move like glass.

Dance mirrors don't speak
But we all take a peek.

It's early morning.
The air is hot.

We dance to the music
And sweat a lot.



Pastel 7.5 x 9.5
$175.


Windhover was established in Pigeon Cove, a small village by the sea in Rockport, Ma. on five acres of farmland by dancer Ina, and Herb Hahn. They converted the barn into a dance studio, the stable into a library, sheds and out-buildings into dormitories for a performing arts camp, a chapel/theater, and an outdoor stage for dance and theater performances (a mini Jacob's Pillow). Today, besides dance classes, they present unique and historic dance performances. A gem.

June roses, mixer, Bohoy

My dear friend, the consummate baker, wanted her workhorse mixer to look less like a horse and more like art sitting on her counter. I painted trailing red roses on the little pony and now it's a "show horse."

May Day herb garden

May Day.
My day to make May Wine.
Hopefully woodruff and mint are peeking up in the herb garden.

steep and flavor the wine.

April bouquet, Bohoy pastel

T.S. Eliot said, "April is the cruelest month." 
 Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.

This April has been cruel. 
Snowstorms, rainstorms and chills. 
With hope– tulips, daffodils, magnolias & more will endeavor to pop for our Passover and Easter. 

Pastel, 8x10, SOLD
