A friend of mine feels this work is holding a story in it. I thought about that comment after and realized he was correct.
|Last Light on Town Hall 20x16 Calendar Pic for August 2014|
The second evening there was chatter. Across the street from where I had set up, a family was on their front porch. The woman was feeding dinner to her children. The man was painting trim on the porch. A male friend was visiting commiserating on his troubled love life. The kids needed to finish dinner. At some point the friend left. Like the old tv cop stories, "There's a million stories in the naked city." Not that Saranac Lake is a city. Population of 5000 just does not come close. In the spirit of the evening though, while developing the late sun hitting the wedding cake clock tower, the atmosphere of the day is infused with the story on the porch, heard but not seen, in the air.
"Last Light on Town Hall" is hanging at the Adirondack Artists' Guild in Saranac Lake.
