That's the title of this newest painting, finished on Monday.

Living in the shadow of Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, WA, has provided me with some insights into my community. Many of my art students come from military families stationed here. I don't discuss politics with any of them, though I suspect a number of ideological differences based on some of the things the kids say.

What I can't ever fault is the dedication and love these families have for our country, and how important that service is. 

This painting, already sold though not yet dry, is about the fundamental nature of their service.

Some days more visible than others; but always there.

Thank you both for coming by. 

I love making these foggy views.

Thanks, Monkey! Love that you noticed, even though the tones don’t translate perfectly from camera to internet.

beautiful, though can remind one of living in or next door to thermonuclear primo targets

Moki Ikom, yes, there’s that. It’s not hard to imagine, either.
