Cerulean Blues

June and July and nearly August…

As I listed these months, counting the time since my last post, a cover of “Fly Like an Eagle” by Tony Crown started playing in the background. It was a slow ghostly version of the old Steve Miller Band song, never heard this version before. Perfect synchronicity. Time keeps on slipping…

But I haven’t been sleeping by the sea. Gabriel Harrison chose a number of works during a studio visit in early spring, most of them recent, for a solo exhibit at Stanford called Cerulean Blues. He put together a beautiful installation, especially for Copepodilia: 64 images varying in size from 10″ x 8″ to 50″ x 40″. It was up for much of July and just closed yesterday.

One work was unresolvable – the photographs of collisions along the coast. I’ll figure it out eventually, but for now, I pared it down to just one image, same title as the show: Cerulean Blues.

    • Thanks so much, Marcia, and thanks for coming to the opening, and for visiting my wintery haunts with me! I think Susan Krane might be writing something. Fingers crossed, she’s such a great writer (as are you).


    • Thanks, Nan! Hey, let me bring this to you! Know any places that might be interested in exhibiting this? I’m just putting together some documentation to send around, hopefully travel this a bit…
