  • Christmas Eve 20 x 24

    A beautiful evening like this, with the setting sun reflecting off the opalescent snow, really moves me and inspires me to paint an oil landscape on location. As I painted, I could imagine the sound of the choir singing Christmas hymns in the church.

    This work was originally inspired by a musical composition by the Estonian composer, Arvo Part. The piece "L' abbe' Agathon" is taken from a French legend as is described below...

    Mr. Part's inspiring composition can be heard at...   

    https://vimeo.com/78860101

     

    Going to town one day to sell some small articles, Abba Agathon met a cripple on the roadside, paralysed in his legs, who asked him where he was going. Abba Agathon replied, "To town to sell some things." The other said, "Do me the favor of carrying me there." So he carried him to the town. The cripple said, "Put me down where you sell your wares." He did so. When he had sold an article, the cripple asked, "What did you sell it for?" and he told him the price. The other said, "Buy me a cake," and he bought it. When Abba Agathon had sold a second article, the sick man asked, "How much did you sell it for?" And he told him the price of it. Then the other said, "Buy me this," and he bought it. When Agathon, having sold all his wares, wanted to go, he said to him, "Are you going back?" and he replied, "Yes." Then said he, "Do me the favour of carrying me back to the place where you found me." Once more picking him up, he carried him back to that place. Then the cripple said, "Agathon, you are filled with divine blessings, in heaven and on earth." Raising his eyes, Agathon saw no man; it was an angel of the Lord, come to try him.

  • She is Not Gone 60 x 48
    Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933)

    "She Is Not Gone"
    “I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come together to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says: ‘There! She’s gone.’

    Gone where? Gone from my sight--that is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her; and just at the moment when someone at my side says, ‘There! She’s gone,’ there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, ‘Ahh, there she comes!’ And that, my friend, is dying!”
