"EVERY TUESDAY"

Most recent work: "Every Tuesday." 12 x 16 inches on birch plywood. Now on display at the Bush Barn Art Gallery in Salem, Oregon, as part of the Radius 25 annual art exhibit. The kernel of this piece came from a photo I had surreptitiously taken at a local small-town restaurant. Notice the artwork that hangs between them. It hints at a mirror image of the two gentleman as a way of saying that, even when they are not bodily at the restaurant, they are always there in spirit. The poster to the right symbolizes the youth they recall as they regularly meet each week. Though they may mourn their youth, I thoroughly believe they enjoy the old men they've become. I think we've all seen these friends at one time or another. And I hope we keep seeing them.
