Thoughts!!




Chuck Close on his book...Inside the Painters' Studio...

On painter's block....




"Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work. And the belief that things will grow out of the activity itself and that you will — through work — bump into other possibilities and kick open other doors that you would never have dreamt of if you were just sitting around looking for a great ‘art idea.’ And the belief that process, in a sense, is liberating and that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every day. Today, you know what you’ll do, you could be doing what you were doing yesterday, and tomorrow you are gonna do what you did today, and at least for a certain period of time you can just work. If you hang in there, you will get somewhere."

Magpie Tales ~ The Snows Came!!



Visit The Mag....a fun challenge this week and lots of entries!!  Here is the painting Tess offered this week..

Winds of History by Jacek Yerka


This painting took me in so many directions!  Ha!  But one jumped out at me !!!  Here is my take on the painting...



2013

The snows came...
 She watched!
changing the landscape...
She cried!
altering time.
So cold!

The snows came....
 She was aware!
reality modified...
 She paused!
time hesitated.
Beautiful!

The snows came....
She searched!
atmosphere laden....
She planned!
heavy with flakes.
Blinding!

The snows came....
 She tried!
covering plans....
 She wondered!
time hesitates.
Pausing!

The snows came....'
She decided!
purposes abandoned....
She sighed!
lives changed.
Breathe!

The snows came....
She wept!
suddenly melting....
She laughed!
oozing with grime.
Tragic!

The snows came....
She discovered!
cars revealed....
She deserted!
plans restored.
Finally!



(Trying something different!  Fun stretch!)




Have a creative and imaginative and warmer day!
Hugging you

Here is my take on this image...



The Long Kiss

Gazing into his eyes;
looking for acknowlegment,
recognizing the pain.
Flinching!

Gazing into his eyes;
looking for recognition,
feeling panic.
Recoiling!

Gazing into his eyes;
seeking acceptance,
gathering confidence.
Accepting!

Gazing into his eyes;
receiving platitudes,
fighting confusion.
Shaky!

Gazing into his eyes;
trusting intuition,
standing my ground.
Leaving!

Gazing into his eyes;
remembering,
ignoring.
Confidence restored!



Have a powerful and fabulous day!
Trusting your instincts!
Hugging you

Altered...



And my take on it....




Shadows


 Seeping into my mind;
crawling up my spine,
shadows of you....
shadows of us...
paralyzing!

Seeping into my mind;
crawling up my spine,
memories of you....
memories of us...
mesmerizing!

Seeping into my mind;
crawling up my spine,
coloring my day....
tinting my moments...
texturizing!

Seeping into my mind;
crawling up my spine,
paralizing!
mesmerizing!
texturizing!

Seeping into my mind;
crawling up my spine,
celebrating love....
surrounded by moonlight...
Constructing a dream!
Loving you!




Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you
SueAnn
