Rest in Peace Alec Dawson (1938-2012)

My dear friend Alec Dawson of Rhode Island, fellow watch collector and art lover / philanthropist, you will be missed by many. Our daily 'chats' were the highlight of my day, your wit, humour and intelligence will stay with me forever. Thank you my friend.

Continued work in the studio today on the studies for the "Nuage" series. My problems/concerns, are how to paint a cloud that is effortless, I am wanting it to be a poem, suspended in light and space, yet with the presence of a monument. I want to infer rather than define, and that is the challenge.

I spent another few hours in the studio today working on some studies of flowers in gouache, such sweet frustration trying to fit the universe within a single flower. I hope to torment myself again tomorrow.
