    I’ve wondered what would happen, should Ken of wake and Ken of dream were to meet. I’ll try to be sure neither is standing on a roof, in that event.

    I wonder when Chagall painted that one. Maybe very early on?

    I love: “I am calling forward
    waiting to parallel myself
    behind”

    I hope you get some more out of this painting. The sense of being all over the place comes out strongly. Maybe the next one will be aiming for something. The moon, maybe?

    “I am calling forward” is my favorite line. It seems mysterious yet so positive.

    I don’t know how you manage these, Kerfe. They are so beautiful and thought-provoking and how do you adhere to these forms of verse? I could never do it, but I just love to enjoy yours. And thinking of Jo again with the planets, hands, faces.

      Thanks Laura. I’ve been doing collage a long time! They say you simplify when you get older, but I seem to be going in the opposite direction.
      The poetry is just practice. For me, the forms provide a focus and discipline. The biggest lesson I learned in Design Fundamentals is that restrictions actually give you more freedom and for me it’s certainly always been true. And I’ve always loved to play with words, that’s just what poetry is.

        Wow, restrictions give more freedom. I’ll have to think about this. I’ve always felt the opposite but hmm. Ok thank you.

        That class was quite an eye-opener for me. But I couldn’t have worked comfortably as a designer without knowing it. The restrictions given with each project are an opportunity to come up with a creative solution both because they focus your thinking and because they keep you from being overwhelmed with possible solutions. My instructor had to hit me over the head with it a bit, but I finally got it. A few things to work with are much better than everything when looking for an answer.

        Ok, that makes sense. I am sometimes overwhelmed by the variety of art supplies (owned and not) now that I’m into mixed media stuff. Hmm. Food for thought. Thanks.

        It doesn’t mean I’m always good at keeping myself from too much input!
