Titles are funny- I have a hard time with them. But as I continue on this group of paintings I am realizing that the series is about place. whether it is Mexico, Italy or Colorado, each painting is about something I have seen and has been imprinted on my memory. The series is a catalog of sorts, hence my desire to display it as a group. It is more than a list and close to a snapshot; a reminder of my experience of a moment and the mysteries of a particular place. No people, no nature, just the man-made buildings and streets.

Does the top one look familiar? it is a larger version of Quiet. This is Quiet Too
the middle one is Anticipation and the bottom one is Pentimento. Perhaps they are all a homage to this month to quote Dickens, " the best of times, the worst of times" a time of anticipation, dread and a heartfelt desire to have this election over so we can get on with our lives. Of course that will depend on it going the way we wish to hope and change via Barack Obama.

I am now exactly half way through my new series; ten paintings completed and ten to go. I hope to complete the series by the end of the year. They really look good together- right now I am positioning them 4 across and three down which makes a single piece that is 60" x 80". I am calling it the Hill Town Series- the inspirations comes from my time in Oaxaca and Guanajuata as well as Italy. I wouldn't necessarily describe Rome,Denver or San Patricio, Mexico as hill towns, but each place has been part of the inspiration for the series. By the time I complete painting number 20 I believe the title for the series will reveal itself.
