FIVE SENSE (and Change) Occasionally I revisit an earlier theme without conscious intent.
I wonder, why five?
The senses. A nickel. A birthday, a wedding. Fingers and toes.
The underpainting for “Five Lines (2017),” incidentally, was made in 2012 — a year before “Five Lines (2013). I continue to periodically update earlier canvases. Here are three recent examples. In the last one, simply turning the painting allowed me to see it in a new way.
My paintings “Models of the Wall” and “11.11.16” were among more than 30 pieces of artwork in “Art is Still Legal: Artivism in the Age of Trump,” a group exhibit at Elusie Gallery in Easthampton, Mass. More than 500 people attended Saturday’s opening reception.
“Models of the Wall” remains on the walls for the exhibit, which continues through August 5.
It is well worth a visit.
“Chi” is one of more than 20 new oil and acrylic paintings in “A Paletteable Feast!,“ at Hope and Olive Restaurant, 44 Hope St., Greenfield, now through August.

Oh yes five… a strong number and concept in Buddhism as it represents the hand: 4 plus one, the important one being the thumb; creating with our hands…
