Today is Different, 12x30x1.5
I began this piece one cold, promising January day. I love winter and its light. I love how winter’s sun--which is so exceptional and showy and rare mid-season--teases us with hide-and-seek, moves to center stage by April, becoming such a fixture by June that we, forgetting our recent dark days, only notice it long enough to complain about its presence.
Today is Different is a little bit about the days I’ve noticed the sun and a lot about the days I’ve noticed the sun’s work. For months, the sun dapples its light, highlighting and nurturing the textured grays and browns of rest and recovery and then one day, I see what’s been under construction:
The freshest greens, the clearest blues, the
world, that day, made different.
