With Each Breath - 48x48 - $14,000 - currently only for sale directly at a show
mostly i’m as charming as a cavalier dandelion in a summer windstorm, hoping and breathless, revved up by the riskiness, taking it in, making no one no such promise, whispering to myself, my goodness as i fall in love with the endlessness inside one subtle explosion after another
all these wishes i’ve made, some from modest puff, others from the rustle of a fading gust, they are the reason i crafted this brave plan with built-in ascendance and favorable aspirations
heaven knows i can’t capture the whole world today, but that doesn’t diminish my unabashed feelings for it, or why i linger continuing and believing all the things i hold in my hands will last for at least a moment
Bound by Words 48x36 - $9,500 - sale in process
the strings of sentences which i walk on, where I find balance, were pulled from the earth weathered and tanned yet still able to give the hopeful parts you can see in my eyes which i can feel in my feet when i dig in, when i pick up where i left off following the contours of a complex root system into the depths, knowing it could take hours
but i treasure myself when i treasure the time, when i’m neck deep unearthing stars, mapping underground mountains. tunneling into hidden chambers, breathing at a softer pace, holding onto every thread bound to me by words strung with potent touch and deft intention

the beautiful and loathsome life i’ve led, getting charmed by trees far too old for me, and getting the good sort of cold shivers in the darkness, in the garden, i’m falling for it, i have been for years asking the night sky if she’s awake too, and where is this place, what is this wonderful, was it meant for me, the answers i hope will all begin with oh my darling

as the river ebbs, the sky opens, stars drop, i’m left hardly breathing watching the moon falling, finding myself whispering for my oldest book to throw itself at me, to catch the wind, to make a miracle, to drip into my hands
in these dreams i’m drawing the sky soaring a wild blueness, a clearness. Yet at the limits i’m twisting, i’m turning the fading moonlight into empty pages, then my hands get loose in the shadows and the whole world appears in a sketch, your face is different from what i remember, and your eyes are so deep, i’m hardly breathing

all my life I’ve listened for everything, I’ve tried so hard for anything, and I’ve dreamt every night.

The calmness that is here, and the power of night that comes just as the light fades and vanishes from the earth allowing for deeper thoughts with colors stolen from memories appearing and then gone again
The day ends and my hope takes courage in the patience of the night, and the power of tranquility floats into my mind from the deepening sky.
