Three Silent Conversations






Silent Conversation

Conversing within her silence
Frozen in the stillness of a pose
Vulnerability displayed
Secrets seemingly revealed
Years with her artists
Presenting identical performances

Deep secrets are revealed
As more strokes fill the page
Seeing into history
Maybe her soul
As she counts how long to stay frozen
Knowing exactly when to thaw


I spent some time with the Queen yesterday. When asked, she said she has been modeling since the late 1950’s, back when I was eight or nine. I have seen slides showing paintings of a much younger version of her, painted by even older artists than me.

Paranoid

They live in fear of being discovered, or so it seems. Not all is at peace in the islands.

Stepping Forward




Stepping Forward


The main figure is of “D” sketched in a life drawing session a while ago. Today I added a world intent on devouring her.
She still manages to step forward in spite of the effort.
I think it’s the smile.
