Empty Pockets

5" X 7" Oil on Canvas

This past week our Russian, Polish, German? plumber named Simon has spent quite a few hours working on our 1923 house. New plumbing for us (Yea!) not so good for dollars, as Simon would say.

I was working on this painting at the time, an the appropriate name came up by the end of the day. Empty Pockets. Pretty much describes how I'm feeling right now.

Clifton, VA

This one's titled "End of the Lane" - I took some beautiful pictures recently while visiting the Washington DC area. This is around Kay and Joes property in Clifton, VA. I hope to have a few more paintings from this gorgeous area. Joe and Kay are planning to open up their "compound" by next summer for a youth camp. Needless to say, It was very inspiring!
