Honor

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]

STOP and smell the roses


6 years ago I did this painting of a local greenhouse.
6 years later it is gone. 
Once overflowing with flowers of every color and hue, and size, and perfume;
now it is a rubble of wood, dirt, and death.
On this day I am forced to face the fragility of beauty, the passing of time, and heed the reminder that we must always "stop and smell the roses".
