I remember feeling a surge of joy when I felt the subtle pulse of new friendship as a child. New friends made their way into my life, not often, but effortlessly. It just felt good, like the first licks of an ice cream cone on a warm summer afternoon. Having ice cream with one another, especially in this beautiful setting, embodies contentment for these new fast friends.  There's just not much that can top robot love.

This wood panel was blanketed first with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel, then painted over with transparent yellow/green acrylic so that the text is readily visible on all sides, as well as in some more transparent areas of the painting.  The image itself is done in oil.  The work comes wired and ready to hang.
