is where the heart is. Certainly true. I am a notorious homebody. Home is where I work, where I relax, where I cook and garden and where I worry. Thomas Moore expounds upon the great soulfulness of home in The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life. Still, travel opens up great windows of awareness. To travel is to experience new sounds, smells and flavors, as well as sights. A spring trip to Boston was like a jolt of adrenaline. Two new paintings are the result. A pair of street musicians in Boston Commons in the early spring light was a momentous experience. I envied their musicality, their spontaneity and their seeming unawareness of onlookers. "Boston Beat" is the result.
