6:55 train

Sunrise foils to my desire to sleep en route to Davis. Land, water and
cement are washed in warmth. Out the eastern train window I am
entranced by red shimmer of small leaves on scrubby bushes, the soft
peach glow of dry grass, and metal silos edged with dramatic orange

Train to Davis

Day 2 on train transit to Davis. Housi g tracts packed shoulder to
shoulder with luxury homes alternate with stretches of Industial
plants, junk yards, and graffiti covered walls. Train tracks afford
the graffiti artist the luxury of time , so the visual offerings are
nicely executed with rich detail and color. We cross the opening to
the delta, a wide crossing edged with soft curving arcs of grasses. A
large ship graveyard forms an abstract cluster at the DAR end. I de
over the bridge we pass through flatland-grasses, distant semi hills
and wandering bodies of water. The lands feels soft wild and open.
School doesn't start till the month end but I want to gain my footing
with my studio setup and practice.
