Somewhere Else




Somewhere Else

Place to be alone.
In a crowded studio
being drawn,
being painted,
being placed
somewhere else.
On a lonely shore
to a place
less ignored.
Sharing the solitude
of memory,
of fantasy.
imaginary places
Far from the crowds.

The watercolor was sketched out last night. The model is “MT”. We were both in a crowded studio searching for solitude.
The other sketch of “MT” is over a year old. Just getting around to sharing it. When drawn, the conditions were very much the same. I didn’t have time to place him somewhere else.

Refugees



Refugees

The original refugees
found shelter within,
soon after the
cowardly
weapon bearers
invaded the mainland.
