#184 Cascadilla Stop



5"x7" oil on masonite SOLD

My Dad likes to think of stop signs as a reminder to bring your attention back to the preset moment. Like a reminder to halt your rambling mind and ask "what am I experiencing right now?" I like to think of them that way too but perhaps focusing more on the visual: What do you see right now? Not, "Oh that's just a tree" or "Hey that's Dave's house", but what color and shapes are coming into your eyeballs right now. That moment before we turn those shapes of colors into "things".

Thanks Mike. I hope you and I can get together soon. I'll be off on vacation for 9 days, but I'd love to get some plein air on or just hang out.
