Spirit

Hudson Town Hall   oil/canvas board   8 x 8
I love looking to the sky and enjoy painting the intersection between the man-made and the infinite. In A Life at Work by Thomas Moore, which is my current read, he discusses the importance of looking up and relates it to spirit. (of course, he also discusses its counterpart, soul, which is a state of being grounded) I had the opportunity to paint another steeple this past week at the Hudson plein-air paint-out, sponsored by Hudson Fine Art & Framing. I was grateful for this opportunity!

Hi Linda,
Thank you for sharing your art online. I enjoy the architectural renderings. If you're interested in Thomas Moore's writings, you may want to visit a blog dedicated to him, called Barque: Thomas Moore at http://barque.blogspot.com . The related forum just finished a 40-day course, Opus, based on A Life at Work. Its passages are still available online if you'd like to comment. I hope you enjoy his book.
