Sometimes, as an artist, an image will appear in my mind that I can't stop thinking about. It is usually something that I want to paint or draw. If I am not immediately able to do so, I'll think about it obsessively until I have the opportunity to 'get it out.' The other day it was a piñata, a few months back, a walrus.
On Saturday, a mere 3 days into the new year, the image stuck in my head was that of a leopard print high heel shoe with a red bow. I had just received the news that a friend had taken her life. Like the images before and those to come, I got it down on paper. Sherri this one is for you.
And lastly a poem by artist and poet, Kim Stout:
"The next is"
Weighed and measured
Deed by deed
Strewn about like chicken feed
However swallowed by the pot
One moment here
