Mountain Waters- new paintings


I have been drawn, since the Stay Home/Stay Safe order here in Vermont, even more than usual to places where water, rock, stillness, flow, and reflection come together.

I go to these places in reality, or in memory and contemplation.

Here are some recent paintings.

Western trails and tales-- new paintings and drawings.

One of my favorite things to do is to head for the Old West in my memory and imagination, drawing and painting the journey.
The scenes and people that arrive when I do this usually have stories to tell me-- stories that might eventually show up in my writing.
Here are some recent works in this vein, made mostly on toned paper, which helps create the retro mood I'm seeking.

Mountain, Sky, and Dreaming Water- New Music



Wednesday, March 25, 2020

In these places

Painting again to return to places: Aspen grove, mountain waters calm or rushing, the mountains on my home horizon,....
I go inside to find the memories, feelings, textures, and then follow paint, pencil--whatever tools suggest themselves--onto the paper.
This is one way I can put myself into places of power and resonance, share them with others.-KMB

Almost Silence- Poem and painting






   
   All senses
     flooded into
            almost silence--
              not there yet, but
I will be
         by grace and
                              the mountain, the sky, and
              dreaming water.

      - Poem and painting by Kevin Macneil Brown, February 2020.
