I just started working on my painting Swimmers again in preparation for the Clark County Open Studios in mid November.

Given this very traumatic fall season with massive forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and yet another mass shooting, I feel its important to  realize we all have special moments that make this world very worth preserving.  Meanwhile we need to do what we can to help those in need and begin to rectify some of the causes of these difficulties such as global warming and creating a better socio-economic system while still remembering to cultivate and savor those happier moments.
