extraordinary painting, entitled,
“Day After Summer” gives a new meaning to realism,
of such magnificent completeness.
His astonishing attention to detail is unmatched
in the world of art today. Here the artist poses questions relating
to time, its nature, meaning, and passage,
with a view toward learning of time’s effects upon our inner experience
skate left abandon,
lies leisurely to a hypnotic summer breeze, as innocence releases its grip from
the distant sounds of children,
as life to death foreshadowed in a fallen toy soldier, reposing within a world
of trust in an era of unquestioning
belief, emblemized in a coca cola bottle cap of a post war era, fades into the
seasons, in fallen leaves.
A ball invites a game of jacks with only a single jack, a precursor of things
to come, prismatic light in the memories
of a passing day that still play under shaded trees.
