Inspired by “Optimism” by Jane Hirshfield
More and more I have come to admire resilience.
Not the simple resistance of a pillow, whose foam
returns over and over to the same shape, but the sinuous
tenacity of a tree: finding the light newly blocked on one side,
it turns in another. A blind intelligence, true.
But out of such persistence arose turtles, rivers,
mitochondria, figs — all this resinous, unretractable earth.

Clouds floating in the sky, changing skyscape, the backwater, and the views of the San Francisco Bay.
The strokes of brush are confident, lush, and fluid in an attempt to capture the time of the day and expressive mood. The painting is not signed.
