Pismo Beach, Cali, Feb 2019
Last year’s Feb trip visiting my big bro in California. Footage of Pismo Beach and nearby areas. Perfect contrast to the swirl and grind of NYC life.
You should check out my brother, artist Joshua Mays. He’s the real deal:
Poem after a cold February walk
But what beauty shall I find in you?
With your dry, cold, shallow sunlight
peeking in, mid-low between skeletal bodies
The forest an ensemble of standing giants
in a collective coma.
The length of your winter
a continuity that makes me wonder how this place,
and sepia toned,
was once an overabundance of
A wealth of green and colorful birds.
A wood thrush calls from the lustrous and prurient canopy.
The high sun winks a promise it will never keep.
Slight mess of water colors and pastels. One of those moments where I really wanted acrylic, but am too cheap to buy. Meh, I’m a musician, not a painter. But I definitely enjoy doing this.
