Election Day – America

Election Day, November, 1884 by Walt Whitman

These stormy gusts and winds

waft precious ships,

Swell’d Washington’s,

Jefferson’s,  Lincolin sails.

In August I made this image in Bruges, Belgium.

After a stormy day, the rain stopped,

The dark sky cleared,

Blue sky swept the clouds away.

In a small square men and women danced

the tango among puddled reflections.

Four Bhutanese Friends – US Congress

I made the little box thinking it could be a container to hold stamps I picked up in Bhutan. The images remind me of Bhutanese folk tales. (click on the image to make it bigger)

The Bhutanese folktale called Four Friends is about an elephant, a monkey, a rabbit and a bird. They all learn to help each other by living together harmoniously. I should paint my  impression of this folktale and send the finished product to Congress; a gift from an American. President Obama, The House of Representatives, the Senate, the Ameican people; It’s you I’m writing about.
