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
for i’m the lovely and wicked creature collecting flowers, luring butterflies for their kisses and their colors, growing mushrooms for their poisons and for the magic which keeps me here, helping me persevere through this novella of a life i’m still in, so please ask me if you love me whisper it, gaze at me, i love you
The Muse - 48" x 60"
Acrylic and mixed media on canvas.
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 - 40" x 30"
Acrylic and mixed media on canvas - 40" x 30".
all my life I’ve listened for everything, I’ve tried so hard for anything, and I’ve dreamt every night.
all my life I’ve felt the countless revolutions of this massive, spinning world and I’ve hung on for dear life, hiding my heart behind this glass wall.
all my life I’ve heard songs wrapped in the wind wandering in the air above me and I’ve always wanted more.
for the rest of my life I’ll promise myself a million repetitions of love as I rummage my way through this universe searching for all the music just beyond my reach.
At Day's End - 48" x 30"
This piece is 48" x 30".
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.
