One meaning of measure, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is a rhythmic structure or movement, as in a melody or dance. Another meaning refers to cadence – a poetic rhythm measured by temporal quantity or accent. And of course we have the common meaning – to ascertain proportion. With all this in mind, the newest painting is titled A Deeper Measure, for are not all waves a series of recurring movements each bearing unique proportions? And in choosing lower tones and colors for this painting, a deeper mood is explored – introspection, calm, perhaps a quiet melancholy as we wait yet again for the sun.
