While collectors end up with most of my art,

(and I know their life is enriched by it),

I get to experience the painting process itself.

That's an intimacy all mine.

I'm there at conception - in a sketchbook, planting seeds,

Alone, preparing  the paints, brushes and painting surface,

then drawing the preliminary lines.

With music on, I paint, like exploring a new land.


Years later, 

I'll see that art and remember the first sparks, (and where I was at the time).

I  know which parts were a whispered gift to me

and which I earned myself with hard wrestling.

I know wonderful areas that were later covered over,

and I know where the bodies are buried.


That adventure and creative energy is still there,

you can feel it.
