Love’s Philosophy

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?—

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?

I just finished the body of work for my show which opens tomorrow, Friday, June 6, 5-7 pm at the Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe. There are lots of new pieces built around the theme “Tesoro Mio” ~ a show full of many treasured objects and beloveds.

“Dorabella” and “The Smoker with Wings”

Dorabella
“Dorabella” 12×9 inches, oil on panel @ Meyer Gallery, Park City SOLD

I’ve always loved the name “Dorabella.” I was painting this while listening to Mozart’s opera “Cosi Fan Tutte” ~ and it was natural to name this piece “Dorabella” after one of the characters. I think that “Dorabella” means “beautiful” (bella) “gift” (dora.)

The Smoker with Wings
“The Smoker with Wings” 12×9 inches, oil on panel @ Meyer Gallery, Park City SOLD
