Tough decision


Yesterday I decided not to teach in the spring. This is the first time I haven't been in school as a teacher or student since 1982.
I am going to try and support my girlfriend and hopefully help her make the most of her artist residency in Milwaukee. You can link to her site from mine to see what she does.
I did this painting on black Friday from my parents house. I was thinking of a Corot painting of a pathway heading to a village.
How much more intimate and "connected" were people before paved roads. I wish I lived someplace that I could walk through the land without asphalt or concrete, and to know the path from my childhood. This is about as close I a get. I long again to know the path from memory.
Of course now the pathway is covered in snow....
