Boston Beat   oil/canvas   40 x 30 x 1.5
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.

Hi Linda,
Thank you for drawing attention to Thomas Moore's writing and for sharing your artistic talents. Readers may enjoy a blog, Barque, dedicated to Moore at barque.blogspot.com. Moore writes often about the theme of Home and he's featured in a recent film about this topic created by Carol Gregor.
