new paintings

couplet

these are both from b&w photos.  the above has written at the bottom of the snapshot: “couple in a voodoo trance.” I’m thinking it is from the 1940s, maybe new orleans where voodoo trances are thick on the ground.

baththe woman in her bath is, I think, from england or france during ww2.

summer

I spent june in amsterdam, writing, but also biking [fell 3 times; definitely getting better at falling] and watching the skies, which are higher there, the clouds always on the move over this land by the north sea. I love summer so much, can’t stand when it starts running out.
