The November stillness has set in. Preparations for winter have been completed in the garden. The studio has become my favorite place to be. I have laid out many of my "starts", my ideas that just were not ready to be completed. They are like bookmarks in a favorite book of mine, saved for the time I want to dig deeper into the thought. Calm in the Storm series: Calm in a Storm is the thought behind these three paintings. The smaller two are on 4x4" panels. The third panel is 8x8"....and the reason for the name "Calm in a Storm" series.
