Four days have passed since returning to life on Dorchester. It’s been delightful to be back home with all the familiar people, pets and plants that make daily life so rich. It’s the yan to the traveler’s yin. The familiar which makes the unfamiliar exotic. Happily, I’ve returned to a lot of fulfilling work to do. Commissions keep paying the bills but leave time to squeeze in some time to paint memories of my halcyon days on the Chiemsee. Having had a big dose of Werner Troutmann and Julius Exter has given me a fresh edge I’d ben seeking in my work. Here are two new pieces of Germany as well as a new commission completed.
