“Sterling, look at that!” “Look at what, Felix?” “That huge box. From Canada.” “Looks like the artist received another shipment of Kroma paint.

Bask in Alaskan adventure
Mountains reach up to forever.
Untameable rivers run wild.
Sunshine carves you a memory.
Images of grandeur for miles.
Enchantment begins once you touch tundra.

You like art that speaks to you
So do I.
You like art that takes you to that special place in your mind.
Am I right? You like to go to that special place because it helps you remember who you are.
I like art like that, too.

If those shapes and colors and words and thoughts remind you of you…then it was you I was painting for that day.
Thank you for being here right now.
Thank you for letting me know it spoke to you.
Thank you for letting me know I’m not alone.

What do you hear?” “I listen with my eyes.” “What? You are a crazy, old bird.” “You have much to learn, Felix. And […]
