Close friends. Delicious ones at that. I painted this after a chat with a close friend of mine.It brightened up my day. And I just got off the phone with another who lives in LA. Fire is burning all around him, but not so close to his home. Phew! I hope I don't sound preachy, or too serious, but call a friend today and have a little chat. Houses, things, possessions, not worth near as much. Having some time, a little pause, to speak of all your news, or just to be silly, to help work a problem out...anything will do. A quiet conversation with someone you hold dear... Priceless don't you think? Listen to their voice. Sometimes that's just the thing we needed most. So I painted these with richness and an intimacy. To share with you what I think is a precious commodity.
