Sackett Footbridge

Sackett Footbridge, Beebe Lake, Cornell, 11.22.2009.

Summer evenings, when the sun is in the north, the bridge falls into shadow before sunset. But these too-brief autumn afternoons, the day's last sunlight still warms the stones. Up on the path, La Petit Chou makes friends with a cat.

Charcoal; 7 1/2" x 11 1/2"

I've wanted to work like this for awhile. Less finished, more suggested- More room, you could say, to dream. Sounds easy, doesn't it: Just loosen up.

Available Light

Tom, 1989
35 mm photo

A favorite portrait. Tom was a great subject: A (much more accomplished) photographer himself, he understood available light, and he could sit very very still.

No Sorrowful Way

No Sorrowful Way
Charcoal, Graphite; 8 1/2" x 11"

New drawing, first I've finished since late July. This one's been on the drawing table awhile, lingering at various stages. Much as I do, actually.

The title intends no disrespect; I expect Jesus has had his fill of sorrow too.
