A kiss studied
is so much more beautiful
than a kiss performed.
It gives nothing away.

A sound is burned but a kiss is alive.
Alive like a moose scarfing wild rhubarb.

I’ve been taking some time away from trying to capture the elusive painted equivalents of things primarily Adirondack in origin, which in many instances are so very positive in character.
