Sun Setting Observations

The sun rubs its sleepy eyes and begins its descent as a palette of oranges, pinks and yellows replace the once bright blue sky. Clouds tumble in chilly gusts, tethered only by the illusion that all clouds are alike. Smooth gradients fill the sky like a soothing color pencil illustration. The sun grins with a […]

Overflowin’ with Freud

A middle aged man lays on a soft couch and leans his head on the overly cushioned armrest. His feet extend outward as he breathes deeply, followed by a sheepish exhale. His eyes are deep and his skin runs ruts like a muddy trail. His hair is gray beyond his years and his hands shake […]

Snyder Art @ Club 6: SF

6th street, located just off Market, crawls with meandering hobos and sleazy drug dealers. Energy buzzes like a misguided bee hive. Skirmishes outbreak like an inner city epidemic and the corner thrives with business. An old building, slightly dilapidated and surrounded by stagnant puddles, stands firm along a moist alley. A series of colorful rectangle […]

Pods Away

Hobos growl and tourists toss wishes into the overly chlorinated fountain as the Floss Silk Trees (Ceiba Speciosa) loom. Their intimidating thorns poke like a stubborn nail and their thick trunks shine with a swampy green. High above the ground and tangled in the web of prickled branches hangs fairly large fruit pods similar to […]

Rosy Weeks

February flipped into the breeze like a napkin blown off a roadside table. Kisses were planted softly on warm cheeks and hands met during long sunset walks. Rhymes scribbled on nameless pages sat snug under wipers and whispers tickled the unexpected ear. Lazy mornings often became mid day snuggles and late night snapshots now dangle […]
