These next paintings were done in collaboration with poet-singer Ben Hartlage. Most times, he wrote the songs and I did the picture, but sometimes we reversed it. Click on the image to read the accompanying poem. Ben's been slowly recording these songs and hopefully one day we'll get a chance to hear that. They're really meant to be sung and Ben's voice and arrangements are really great. Hear mandolinist David Long's version of Sailing on Dry Land. We made a book of them that you can buy here.
|This is all earlier work in a larger 2x4' format. There are many more paintings, new and old, not on this site yet but you get the idea.|
