The basis for the Adirondack Calendar paintings is what I think of as Earth's personal holiday snapshots as it travels through space at compelling moments.
All eleven paintings in the Adirondack Calendar series depict color and light, wind and ice, sun and water. These are very subtle, very detailed painterly works. Pigments, powdered stone fragments and slices of thin mica taken from the Earth are applied by brush, branch, leaf, water and rock to make these paintings. When you view these paintings up close, you will see layer upon layer of translucent color and rock.
Dates and numbers and mathematical square boxes try to creep into these calendars, but they have very little power here and remain secondary. They are man's invention and, like mechanical time and clocks, they soldier on with self-importance. The Earth ignores them. The boxes look very real, three-dimensional and solid. But this is simply an optical illusion. There is no such thing as mechanized time.
