Work Becoming relevant, involuntary

Contextual, therapeutic, Application.


cadmium red;  imperceptible compliment

to olive grey green, chromatic-

ally integrating seeming dissonance.


Nature the Wellspring of primary involvement.

    Nice, that’s the sort of art I have around my house.

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Wow. I absolutely love your art. I know very little about the topic but this kind of style is my favourite.

    I believe that red does compliment the olive green really well. I liked how you left the word chromatic sort of dangling followed by “ally.” A nice play on words there. I see that you’re an accomplished painter as well as writer…that’s wonderful!

    That painting is stunning! Wonderful colour descriptions in the poem.

    The smell of oil paint reminds me of my grandfather, who was a fine landscape artist; hanging out in his studio was always bliss.

    Beautiful painting; and your sevenling expresses it SO well.


  9. I love the painting too, and can relate to the poem as one who plays around with colours sometimes.

    Beautifully expressed 🙂

    I admire the artistic perspective – from color to the muse – nature the wellspring of my primary involvement ~ If you love doing it, it is not work anymore ~


  12. Oh I love that painting… love the use of colors in this… a great topic for the form. The reference of primary (to colors) in the last line is great.

Artist Statement or rationale or why do I do what I do



I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
