Diary 8th/9th

Photos et pastel gras sur carton, texte, 106,6 x 139,7 cm, 1996

Worked until 3 am. Very cold, 16°F. Deep snow-Window frozen shut so had to get up each time the three cats wanted in or out - Always separately- Couldn t leave them out all night in that cold-When day dawned and the sun rose I did leave them out and was able to sleep until 3 p.m. Still 26°F. Went downtown for paper & brought spray paint- Had a late lunch, grilled cheese & french fries, decaf. On way home, now 21° F, saw an unusual sunset-gray to maroon clouds fluorescent orange-edged, in a pale blue sky- Sprayed one large icicle with silver paint- borrowed hair dryer from neighbors and defrosted window-Fish tank sfoang leak. Emptied it, put fish & plants in bucket & siliconed the inside - Watched Outer Limits on TV and came into studio to work on this piece Diary.

The Dahlia-Matterhorn Hypothesis Alliterarive Landscape serie.

Photos et pastel gras sur carton, texte, 101,6 x 152,4 cm, 1998.

During many departing mandatory droughts, meteorologists doubted most dissertations - much discussion meants double magnification. Drurds (?) measured diurnal manifestations- Desert monuments do make direct minimums, devastating maximuns. Deep motivations demand measurements - Dams might desecrate Damascus.

Alpine Greenhouse

Photos et pastel gras sur carton, texte, 101,6 x 142,2 cm, 1998.

Most of the greenhouses I have seen have been near sea level or at least on the lowest available ground. But I can imagine (and am imagining) a greenhouse high in the Alps, where tropical vegetation under glass would seem even more bizarre. This depicted green house is the great glass house at Kew in London where I recently visited - after visiting the greenhouses & flowers borders, I had a picnic lunch on the lawn a mid of flock of Canada geese.

Rainbow Landscape

Photos et pastel gras sur carton, texte, 101,6 x 142,2 cm, 1996.

Except in rainbows & prisons, as far as I know Nature does not arrange colors in a rainbow order - this landscape attemps to do that. Starting at the left with orange tulips & arum seeds. Next come yellow Sylphium & gloriosa danisies continuing in the center with green foliage, a small amount of blue muscari purple malvas come next, then violet. Iris & tulips, finishing with red holly berries. This beeing the English way of ordering the rainbow.

Mexican-French Hollyhocks Alliterarive Landscape serie,

Photos et pastel gras sur carton, texte, 152,4 x 106 cm, 1998.

My friendships handily alleviate lasting seriousness-Many find hardship & love simultaneously. Mutual financial headaches after levity seem mightily frightening. However aberrations leave some mandatory feelings. How average linguistic silences make for hell - a limited suggestion means far higher alleviation.
