One memorable dream
Of which I woke from smiling
There were sparkling blues and
Romantic hues of caramel and red
Of warmth and authentic grins
Destroyed with me, reborn with me
This place of home and harmony
Strange moments of grace and grand
Open and free; I take my chance
I started the painting as something random to work on, but then it started to take a strange shape, reminded me of a bird and I finished it with that in mind. The title is from a Sade song I love by the same name, just thought it fit.
Some of the lyrics of that song…
How could you?
You are the morning bird
Who sang me into life everyday
As for the poem, the “I take my chance” is something I relate to the risk I’ve taken recently in placing much of my art and photos online to sell as prints. It’s really the largest ‘gallery’ of everything I’ve done over the years. I’m excited to share so much of it, but nervous. It’s one of those moments where I fear being hated for one thing or another, but I just need to remember it’s about the art. I’m not trying to prove anything to anyone, it is what it is and I’ve worked steadily for months now to make it the best I know how. I broke the categories up into four sections, Paintings – Photos – Various (includes both art & photos and just extra stuff) – and Black and White. And as far as pricing goes, it’s based on the largest size I could make each image individually but everything is still customizable.
I doubt I’ll live to do anything more than this really…It’s been fun.
So all there is left is one drawing to complete, then back to writing for a bit to tie up some loose ends.
