I stare out my living room window a lot.  Sometimes I don’t even realize it until my wife shouts at me (lovingly) from the kitchen to see if I’m available to help with the 2 kids, dishes in the sink and dinner on the stove.  Really, I don’t mean to zone out like I do; there’s just something about looking out that window that is…right.

I find myself doing it when I’m with my friends too.  We’ll be talking about the deep spiritual truths of the universe at Starbucks and I’ll get caught in a stare out the window.  I’m not really looking at anything- at least I don’t think I am.  I just like to get lost in my thoughts.  If they’re good thoughts, I’ll stay in them, but if they paint an ugly picture, I’ll usually pull myself away and ask myself if there’s something productive I can do.   Somehow, whatever it is that pulls me to stare out the window has painUnison detailted itself into this painting.  I can’t tell you how or why, but in my opinion, that makes this piece one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever painted.


My favorite part is that the birds sing in unison.
