visual artist and poet too!

I was in a writing workshop today with the wonderful Reisha Holton at ArtEAST and wrote this

Lumpyhead, Go to Bed

Pajamas, hot milk, warm comforter, cool sheets,
soft pillows and stars.
Put the day away,
put aside your worries,
put down your work.
Stretch into your slumber.
Move out of yourself,
let dreams take over.
Work out your problems in the dark.

Pajamas, tensions, difficulties, pain.
Don't hold on so tight.
Let go in this night.
Find freedom in sleeping,
find yourself dreaming,
find what you're needing.
Wait for answers or questions,
just jump into bed.

Pajamas, restlessness, tiredness, heaviness.
Learn from yourself,
you know what you need.
Let your mind look for answers.
Stop seeing,
stop hearing,
stop feeling so much.
Drop all your thoughts now and just
roll to sleep.
Pajamas, peace, quiet and dark.

Biomimicry

This is a link to a show that my friend Shaun Doll hung in his wonderful studio Northwest Encaustics. The show is called biomimicry and it hung for November '09 . The work was developed for this show to explore a single image. This work is large scale with sheet sizes of mostly 22"x30" print paper. Here's one of the smaller images
