In the Breeze

In the Breeze

Laundry. We all have it. I've seen laundry hanging on Maine porches in the dead of winter. I've seen it draped over the lines of sailboats, suspended over the streets of Venice, and reeled over the alleys of Philadelphia.

Laundry is one of life's free pleasures. I did this painting because laundry brings me joy. Joy when I hang it in the sunshine, joy when I stand at the kitchen sink and watch it flutter in the breeze and joy when I take it down and press it to my face smelling the fresh air and sunshine, Finally, joy at night when I rest my head on the pillow.

My Ozark Winter

My Ozark Winter

My first public school teaching job was in the tiny Ozark mountain town of Bakersfield, Missouri. There I rented a mobile home on a dirt road in the middle of Max and Elaine Vaughan's cattle pasture. As it turned out, we had one of the snowiest winters ever and school was canceled for twenty days. I was pretty much stuck in the mobile home for a month. As it also turned out, it was the winter of my greatest loss. To survive and keep busy I made a quilt from fabric remnants - old jeans, leftover curtain material.
Forty years later I still take naps beneath this quilt. Each year I patch the frayed edges. It is soft with age and speaks to me of survival.
