"A Road Traveled"

Oil on Gessoed Masonite, 6"x6"

I have traveled near
And far, on a road that is
Yellow, blue, purple and at times

gray, a long time ago

Then I learn to love 
The grays, the sorrows
Mother of all

I was trying out the newly bought burnt sienna oil stick, and got into painting this little piece. I added a little blue and transparent oxide red and lots of white. It's  spontaneous, and it's a good experience to help me paint looser in the future.

Blue Bottle and Pears

Oil on Gessobord, 11"x14"

Is it possible
To see no shadows
In this shadow world?
