On a sunny day I sought solitude on a tiny spit of land

in Rockland Harbor I set up a rectangle atop triangles.
I turned and looked back to find . . .

. . . my subjects, forms, a cylinder and block to put upon
a rectangle while interpreting the colors of gray.

Afterwards, I observed David Dewey interpreting color,
the artist using the watercolor white of the paper
to interpret his color.

he laying on of a wash.

The building of color that speaks to him.

A simple scene simplified while maintaining
the complexities of it all.

The discussion of technique, and the tilting of the canvas,
spreading the wet color.

The end of the day discussing class work
among triangles and rectangles, where it all took shape,
