Notes: Art

This past weekend, I returned to Sherman. I heard that Vincent began painting again after an eight year hiatus. His last studio was in the ground-floor room of our log cabin in the Los Padres National Forest; now, a studio made in the bedroom loft that I had occupied shortly before leaving for school. Surrounded by windows and beneath the arched ceiling, the loft offers plenty of spatial and spiritual room where Vincent returned to a collection of unfinished paintings, working atop them, adding layers of paint and ink, creating a palimpsest of color and time.
