when skies tendril (May 2021)

It’s May! I haven’t done any artwork for a month, having used art from the archives for my April NaPoWriMo posts at kblog. So it felt good yesterday to ignore the moving boxes and pull out my watercolors and paint. I did two paintings, below–a landscape and some impressionistic flowers.

I then cut them into one inch strips and wove them together for my grid. I also did some further experiments, cutting some of the strips into one inch squares and arranging them in different ways. But that’s for another day with more time to think.

The moon visited me at dawn yesterday. It was dancing with the clouds. The Oracle managed to insert it into my May verse. Well we know how She feels about the moon.

wild winds grow full
of flowers
listen to Maysongs
birds seeding spring air
with gardens rooted deep
in the fertile paths
that follow the wandering moon

    Wonderful Spring verse and so happy you’re creating art again. So nice to see the moon outside your window. I try to see her every night at least once.

    A wonderful blend of moon, color, and spring. The Oracle definitely gave you a special May Day poem, and I’m sure it felt great to paint again.

    I feel this is a time of hope and openings, expressed very strongly in your words and art here. I love the way you’ve woven the colours together!

    So good! So much here and all good.
    Does it hurt, to paint and then cut the paintings into strips and grids? I love that your art is so fluid and textured because of these steps.

    I wake up before dawn these days and love the sound of “birds seeding the spring air”. Interesting to see the moon from your vantage point. Hope you continue your exploration of intertwining images with poetry. Have a wonderful day, Kerfe.
