Late Day, Grey Sky

Watercolor on Arches
24" x 18" 2003

Years after the work, it occurs me this is exactly how it looks when the wind carries smoke from distant wildfires to the rest of the southwest. The sun shines through it, orange, and the cheat grass takes on a wierd brightness.

The Boyfriend

Watercolor on Arches

He calls to me from outside my window. Summer or snow. Just to please him, I want to sprinkle entire bags of seed everywhere.

His subspecies has a lifespan of over 10 years, so I know its the same goodlooking guy every time.
