-from the other side of silence. mixed media on wood panel. 9×12-
As I was finishing this painting today and waiting for the title to come to me, these lines from Theodore Roethke’s poem, Journey to the Interior were running through my head:
On the one side of silence there is no smile;
But when I breath with the birds,
The spirit of wrath becomes the spirit of blessing,
And the dead begin from the dark to sing in my sleep.
In other news, I am in the process of setting up my Etsy shop so it will be easier to buy framed originals. I just ordered a shipment of frames and I’m so excited to begin getting my paintings all ready to go to their new homes.
