Stepped Away..

watercolor and pencil drawing“Moon Woman Message”
watercolor and pencil-11″x15″

Seems I’ve been gone awhile. Words no longer stream from my brain.
The details are distractions.

This small drawing illustrates
“Every body falls apart”
If you think not, you are disarmed by deceptive thinking.
You will not last forever in that skin bag you might hold so dear.

Next we meet, there are no promises I shall be any more charming. But I don’t think anyone ever accused me of being flushed with sweetness and light!

While perhaps not charming, I do have a few charms… Go figure.

Feelings always expose themselves upon the page.
They simply cannot lie.
That must be why I make marks…

My mountain is dead.
As soon as she has dried, I’ll bury her under a decent layer of white paint.
But I haven’t done with the old lady;
far from it!

Emily Carr

  1. Lovely and strong work.

  2. Words are not nearly as important as art. And I’m rather sick of this skin bag myself 🙂

    • Ah, don’t blame you but we are stuck in them, aren’t we…. Til we’re not anyway. I’ve not made much art recently, just drawing. I can’t climb the stairs cause of a torn knee ligament. Always something!

  3. Behind Me — dips Eternity –
    Before Me — Immortality –
    Myself — the Term between –
    Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray,
    Dissolving into Dawn away,
    Before the West begin –

    – Emily Dickinson

    I always liked this one (^^)
    Much love, dear heart.

  4. always an honour to have you here. Keep on taking care of yourself. That is all that matters.
