MAKING ART

In making art
I connect to spirit; mine and Creator’s.
I connect to soul; mine and the work coming forward.

In making art
Mystery is revealed
in brush stroke, pencil stroke, eraser stroke.

In making art
the paper bleeds
with colors of memories, longings, promises.

In making art
Lost dreams revealed in the negative spaces,
Birth a painting of their own stories.

Artmaking is a patient, persistent practice.
Except when it isn’t
And bursts forth with uncontrolled urgency.

Spirit explodes on the canvas,
Out of my heart,
Into the world.
