Lot of rain today. But that doesn't mean it's a bum day to paint on a rainy day. Those days can be fun as the scenery does change and colors and values also. In fact, trees sag on a rainy day especially when they get soaked.  Things become a little darker when wet.

For some reason I kind of like poems lately. In college I studied John Keats as part of studying poetry in one of the English Lit courses. I wasn't in to poetry but I did find it interesting to study then and learning about who Keats was. I do remember one thing, he died very young do to an illness. 

The Watcher
by Randall Cogburn

Thirty seconds pass
A presence is near.
It knows no boundary
To human folk but
A glimmering fear

Not, or who
They may call
Says who under
The Oak on a
Cold winters day.

If around
No questions where?
Doubt for not
The Watcher
Is there.

Still some green down here in Texas. As the cold weather rolls in I'm sure it will go soon. However it does pop up every now and then throughout winter, especially on nice sunny stretches off weather.

Had some time to paint outdoors today but under the cover of the porch as it rained for quite some time. A view just off the back porch where I sweep my shavings from working on woodworking projects. I didn't realize this until now but the concrete block shown I have sitting there has sunk over time and sort of inspired the poem below. 


Weight of Things
by Randall Cogburn

A Sawyer cuts
With the weight
Yet forces none
Such trouble
As it's done.

Over to plane
The old way
Less prone to break
Yet no mistake
And top pay.

Now in rhythm
The shavings fall
A familiar sound
So sharp
but flat.

A Clean breeze
Few sweeps
Before an hour 
All done. Scribbled:
Play with Cat.
