paintings


like the forgetful artist that she can be
winter left some paintings behind


some mottled and rainworn

some sun-creased and soft


some fractured and careworn


all looking to be hung on the wall of the gallery in the sky

every one is a masterpiece, yes? rainworn, sun-creased... lovely word choices

Ruth said...

I've always loved paintings gone to crackle. The warm and cool in these dance together so well. And that last fellow looks to be dancing without a partner, poor chap. (he's tilted sideways to the left, arms circled and open)

Dan Gurney said...

Mother Earth is such a prolific and talented artist. She makes masterpieces without even seeming to try. Thank you for showcasing some of her work.

Tess Kincaid said...

Linda Sue said...

Looks like the paint will never dry.

Terresa said...

A gallery in the sky, can I hang there, too?

steven said...

meri - i figure it'll shift somewhere else and become another painting. steven

steven said...

terresa - you surely do! steven

Brigid Daull Brockway said...

Amazing. Makes the snow and ice outside my house today seem a bit less ugly. Would be even less ugly if the snow and ice didn't keep finding their way into my socks...

steven said...

hello brigid and welcome! i laughed when i read your comment - it's snowing here right now and i commute on a bicycle so i know that this morning, i'll have wet socks, a wet butt, and my poor face will become even more weatherworn! however, it's really pretty actually - the snow i mean! steven

Rachel Fenton said...

Freezing seems much the best way to go. Beautiful art.

steven said...

rachel - there's beauty in everything. it's entirely how you see. thankyou for your kind comment! steven
