"follow follow follow follow"

mine twists turns hides reveals

challenges nourishes taunts

gifts puzzles outrageous beauty strangeness and much love

skips rolls hides seeks

disappears altogether then wraps itself around my heart

laughs sings dances and drags its feet

utterly confuses me then grounds me sweetly

the only thing i think i’m certain of

is that

i’m definitely

“off to see the wizard!”

😄

I’m going through a phase where songs play through my head over and over and over on some of the pieces I’m playing around with. ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ (by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg) from the ‘The Wizard of Oz’ took center stage in my brain while i was painting this one. Hence, the title!

    I like the Chipmunks Rap version
    of that song, played at 45 rpm.
    You won’t find it on Spotify,. It’s
    a recording in my imagination 😎
