The Strawberry Moon over Ocracoke Island, NC June 9, 2017.

A week of beautiful sunsets, stars, and a Strawberry Moon.

Goodbye to June.

Sold.

The family house still under construction in a new neighborhood built on farmland. When we moved in, the road was still dirt and the grass was still growing on the recently seeded yards. There were few trees except the few they built around. There was a huge tulip poplar in the back yard of the house next door.  It is still there.

We would gather to play under its branches with our friends.

Across the street was a field that still had cows grazing on it before more new houses were built.

Walking to school we would pass horses in a fenced in corral next to one of the two original farm houses.

There was no beltway. There was no McDonalds. There was no shopping mall. It was quiet and the sky was big and you could see the stars come out at night.

Just short of 60 years later the house has passed on to a new family and the remaining members of the old family remember the big hole in the ground, the dirt yard, and the creek at the end of the street.

“Chloe”

A new addition to the sculpture garden at the VMFA here in Richmond, VA.

“Chloe” by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa (1955).

“Chloe” is an ever changing presence. The light, clouds, sun, and time of day change her, showing many faces and moods.

You will meet a different Chloe at each visit and even as you walk around her. Mesmerizing.

Birthdays…

Another year old.
If one is lucky this will continue.
More aches,
more pains coming unannounced,
over hearing whispers about friends and friends’ parents.
We are not the same
and never will be again,
but that is ok
that is the way it just
happens.

Our trip to Winchester, VA and WV last weekend. Beautiful skies after a huge storm that ripped and twisted trees into houses and streets. Smashed cars and roofs. Now everything is green, the sky is blue, and the air refreshed.

Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic

Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic is on view at the VMFA from June 11, 2016 – Sept 5, 2016.

This is truly an amazing show. Probably the best traveling show since the Picasso exhibit which opened the newly renovated museum. The scale, humor and emotion of these strangely juxtapositioned works of art are breathtaking.

Wiley was born in Los Angeles in 1977 and now works out of New York City.

Please take the time to go to this show, you will not be disappointed.

More photos from this show.
