Blackwater Pond

At Blackwater Pond the tossed waters have settled
after a night of rain.
I dip my cupped hands. I drink
a long time. It tastes
like stone, leaves, fire. It falls cold
into my body, waking the bones. I hear them
deep inside me, whispering
oh what is that beautiful thing
that just happened?

Tree Love

Dsc04868

From this small 12" x 6" study of carving and paint emerges this larger 60" x 48" version.
Trying very hard to stay with the image and not "think" too many thoughts about this piece.
Letting the image come through and speak for me, totally enamoured with this dual tree image.
Entwined yet separate, coexisting and interdependent, like humans and the earth.
