New West at Midnight

It all started with some late night g chatting with Sarah...

"I want a big big painting for above our bed. Dark grey/light grey/red/orange/green.... wonder if we could do it together?. . . Okay, Monday if you are well??? ( i had a nasty cold) I would need to buy the huge canvas and paints" she said.

Well, I happened to have a huge canvas in my basement and nowhere to paint on it. She had the balcony, many cans of grey paint (long story), a heater, and a bag of Reese's peanut butter cups!

We tandum painted until our hands were frozen and before I gave myself bronchitis.
And this is what will soon be hanging on Sarah's bedroom wall . . .

And I got what I was asking for earlier . . .

And of course, a special memory and an enjoyable painting experience!

idle hands

these hands are not mine
mine are clean and typing on a keyboard.
i wish i could say i had a place to paint-
where my hands could get this messy.
messy can be good sometimes-
not in my new apartment.
i need that tonight, to get a little messy...
instead i will stop wishing and just go paint,
dreaming of far off places and times to come.
