Many Skies Have Covered Me [sold]

9x16", oil on masonite

"And many skies have covered me
And many winds have blown me forth
And I have loved the green, bright north
And I have loved the cold, sweet sea."

By the Deep Sea [sold]

6x12" oil on masonite

"There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
there is rapture in the lonely shore,
there is society where none intrudes
by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
I love not man the less, but nature more"

Painting titles

I have such a hard time coming up with a title for my paintings. It's always "Lake with Sunset" or "Tree." I'm not creative that way. Then recently something I was painting reminded me of a poem I like, and I realized that is a good source for titles. It's not hard to find a snippet of poetry that reflects what I was trying to say in a painting.
