    I have been obsessed with the fantasy of uncovering all the blueberry bushes on our land, and there are lots, maybe hundreds of them scattered across what was once an old farm over 50 years ago... it's now our home and the blueberry bushes still stick to my imagination with juicy promise of succulent fruit while I birth heroic images....

The light is oceanic today... with wet air the mist and magic are held by the falling water sounds. Florescent green grass appears to swim along the dark spring earth outside of my studio and two yet-to-blossom trees look like spirit nymphs to me ... and also maybe like seahorse bones dancing back to be cradled in the depths....

I am excited in the studio... another mermaid just happened and it is obvious that the Niagara Falls series of paintings are far from finished. She is part of the series.

A friend commented that my new series was like going back and rescuing my people from the scourge of samsara. He said he felt like throwing in the towel on his family because his family's paradigm is so polar opposite of his - a precocious phase or something.

I think every paradigm is precocious.

I imagine these paintings as explorations of...

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
― Mark Twain

My arms ache in a satisfying way after weeding in the gardens. And my hands are getting their summer callouses on fingers and palms fro...

April 2nd: a foot of snow on the ground and the temperature is 50 degrees outside. Bright sun and sounds of dripping melting water compete with the clicking of my typing and I feel giddy!

In the photo above a 21 year old blueberry bushes look barren, but underneath all that snow is activity...a getting ready to bloom again, a getting ready...
