My Painting

Post by P on Mon Dec 01, 2014 3:33 pm

I wonder what prompted this post? Perhaps it was a question I missed somewhere?


My Painting.

It starts small
Right up in that top corner, there.
Just a spec.
A tiny point of light.
But you have to start somewhere!

The first lines are very thin,
Small,
Faint,
Tenuous.
Small patches of colour
Red rage, the wet nappy against sore skin.
Black frustration, the empty tummy.
Purple, pain!
(wind?).

Rapidly the lines grow,
The exuberence of youth.
Strengthen.
Colours intensify.
Curves develop,
Swell,
Diverge.

More and more hues,
Maturity.
Less corners,
Wider lines,
Much more subtle.

Less black and white.
More and more shades.
More shadows,
Many more shadows!

Now the lines divide,
Companionship.
Running parallel.
Elegant curves.
A vivid supernova of emotion,
Exploding.
Blending.
Filling the canvas.

Now mellowing.
Like grey hairs growing.
More restful.
Thoughtful.
Sleepy.
Quiet.
Peaceful.

One day,
When I'm finished,
I'll put down my brush.
I'll stand right back,
And take a good look at what I've done.

Someone else is looking too,
Standing close behind me,
Just out of sight.
I know He's there.
He's always been there.
I can always feel His hand on my shoulder.

I love to get people thinking for themselves, and I take it as a great compliment that you are. You should never judge a book by its cover "they" say!

When I visited the Eden project, purely by chance (or was it fate??), I had an encounter with their story teller (she does a wonderful job and is very good at it to!). It the first time she's ever met a living book before, and she was absolutely fascinated to "read" what is "written" on my pages. Exchange is no robbery, and I sent her a story about a certain wolf, although, somehow, I dont think that she will be telling that one to the crowds of children she entertains so well.

Coming back to the subject, you're quite right not to just accept it, life, like your paintings, is built up of many layers, it adds texture and makes us what we are.


thank you
