wabi sabi waltz • acrylic on reclaimed window

This is the same completed piece shot 3 different ways:

mounted on the wall, outside with sunlight shining through it and lastly with fairy lites (which removably mounted) behind it.

pretty much every time i paint there are moments or strokes

where my paints, brushes and i trip over one another and stumble around a bit

laugh fests ensue

my paintings boss me around and always win

it’s a wonderful surrender

i tuck in for the ride and watch what happens

during this first venture on glass….the bumping/laughing/tripping and what in the worlds? never stopped!

i felt like a 3 year old set loose and i reckon it shows…

but oh! what a very fun wabi sabi waltz it was!!!

forever pointing

across all the worlds

in wild distant shades of time

we sit…we ponder

P.S. My dear friend Jo said this post made her blue. Looking at it again I had to laugh because she DOES look really sad! Not that there’s anything at all wrong with sorrow…but this sweet lady actually has what feels to me to be a very loving, compassionate smile on her face. I felt like she came out with a huge heart full of Love for All of Us….but couldn’t stop seeing her in my mind’s eye backlit by the moon. So….Jo….here she is in full view! Not so sad!!! 🤗❤️😊

page turner

our moon is blowing kisses again

the entire earth responds sweetly

and blows them right back

even as you drift off to sleep

blanketed by the cricket’s lullaby

your every exhale sails softly

to her luminescent lips

perfectly

goose steppin’

rubber neckin’

granny’s in the yard

the treetops have made pudding

and we wish upon the stars

fireflies play tubas

and the river likes to dance

swirling

whirling

twirling

in this autumn night’s romance

next to it

autumn came running in three days ago all out of breath and overcome with joy

like santa he bounded straight down the chimney of summer’s life-sucking, perpetually sticky wet heat

banning the zillions of ravenous mosquitoes she kept in the folds of her skirts

everyone and everything has come back to life

even the butterflies have outnumbered themselves and swirl blissfully around our heads as we walk, seeming to sing, “it’s here! it’s here!”

rare birds i’ve never met before, on their way to south american jungles, danced ’round our back deck for a glorious couple of days speaking in languages of deep mystery and magical surprises

political signs wave in the breeze

the tv pipes in now and again leaking horror and opinions all over the floor

but, OH! LIFE, in her infinite, mind-blowing beauty and ALL embracing “Here I Am!!!”s

remains everything that is NOW

shape shifts

your face is all the rocks i see and every blade of grass

your voice is the tickling breeze and waters flowing past

your touch is the clothes i wear and lives inside my skin

your wordless story swallows mine whole…

is Love from end to end…

hoist ’em

keep talking….i’m listening….i sincerely am!

but the ocean, she knows my true name

she’s wrapped her wild spirit through the rooms of my soul

and never once leaves me the same

one foot on land; engaged and alive

the other drifts sweetly away

tossed about, floating free, in a space void of thought

never leaving the places she plays…
