It's hard to believe how fast a year can go by. It's even hard for me to realize that 2016 is about 2/3 of the way complete.
It seems that the passing of time gets quicker each year. Days filled with the distractions and business of life, jobs, hobbies, careers, dreams, friends, family, etc.
I find myself always coming back to the thoughts of while time seems so fleeting these days. Why, when I was a child 10 before 3 seemed to be the longest amount of time before the end of a school day. Why 3 hours passes like 10 minutes when I'm painting at the easel. Or why one or two years just drifts off into oblivion.
As I get older, and time seems to slip away, I ponder what is important in life. I think about what is important and worth the time of the days which fly by so quickly.
I look forward to future days, taking time to enjoy each and every minute as I grow older and older.
And along the way, I will ponder on the days I remember the most.
Just some random thought about the passing of time.
Thanks for reading.

I've been working on a series of landscape and seascape paintings.
When I look for a landscape, I like to find those out of the way settings that we may not often pay attention to. On a daily basis, we are running from one place to the next, not always appreciating the beauty that surrounds us. In my small landscape paintings, I look for these areas to bring forth to the viewer to appreciate the beauty of our world.
Seascapes have alwasy facinated me, I lived by the beach for many years, growin up in Cape May, NJ. During this time, the beach was a part of life, I've spent many days, nights, and years, just staring at the ocean, letting the movement of the waves help me relax and focus on what is important. My series of wave paintings is created as a retrospective of the many times I have stared at the sea.
I will be moving back into narrative work, to boost my skills, I like to paint and draw scenery that may appear in a story telling work as the setting. I also paint figureative studies, which may lead to characters in my story.
Most will be posted on my website and in Facebook as images are created.
Hope all is well for those who read my blog, (I'm not very good at blogging yet, but as I learn, these posts will get better too.)
