This is a new painting which was inspired by a poem I had written a little while ago….
Words are percolating from my soul
A distant place which I embrace with all my heart
Touch not the embers of forgotten dreams
But embrace the light of a new day and hold it softly within your bossom
The joy extinguishes the pain
And gives us reason to refrain from sorrow.
For too long we have suffered needlessly
Not realizing that our destination is our choice and how we travel there.
The tableau of my life is writ anew.
