Circling Thoughts

two guys shooting the breeze @ 2012
When I took the photo of the two men fishing in Long Island the scene reminded me of Martin Johnson Heade's "The Coming Storm" and how much Dad enjoyed that painting. Heade's brooding sky led me to the deep shadow and darkness my father put into several of his works, like his sailboat below. Then Heade's painting circled my brain back to Dad going fishing with his dog at the beach. I never saw my father happier, except when the  New York Giants beat Dallas.

"The Coming Storm" Martin Johnson Heade

" Gold Twilight" Robert A. Pryor @ 1971

Dad & Sparky Lyle @ 1972
