I live along a street that borders Tilden Park.  For the last week the road has been void of joggers, bikers and the 10,000 step people.  Even, the coyote aren’t anywhere to be seen.  Silence.

AQI off the charts.

My paintings have taken on this desolate condition.  I’m a perfumer, a Nose, catching wifts of smoke, pine and oud.  I create olfactory compositions in my studio.  A fragrance wheel of color.

Ashes among the Forest (above)  12″ x 12″ encaustic painting was quickly snapped up the week after it was composed.

What we see becomes what we are looking for; the “arts” can do that.

Follow the scent today and be surprised.
