In the years that have passed by
Time always seemed to be behind
At 15 I was too old to try
At 30 I was just old
Now the time really does go by
Without regard for what you do
Passing by lost opportunities
On a slideshow of what could have been
‘Walk don’t run’ your time is now
In the only present moment that matters
These are ‘The Good Old Days’,
Even when they’re not
This is the day that passed by without regret
The day has passed me by (not to try) – A daring act is taken every time an artist commits paint to paper, there is nowhere to hide. The mix of colours is a conceptual idea of a painter’s palette presenting what could be that first steps in taking a chance, not letting the day pass by. A variety of options lay bare inviting us to engage our creativity.
The art that accompanies my poetry is a type of abstract expression of the theme and/or emotion that the poem conveys. I do not use paint brushes instead I collect leaves, bark, stones, flowers, seeds or whatever interesting shape I find on a walk out in nature or in my garden, then I dip them in the paint to discover different patterns, I also use artist palette knives to enhance these shapes.
As I am painting through a process of experimentation it does not always turn out the way I imagine so I must re-imagine persisting through trial and error. The final art piece may then be the accumulation of three or four attempts painted over each other. However it is the “mistakes” that are ultimately the guiding light that contribute to the formation of the end result.
I take my inspiration from observing the world around me and I learn through the process of experimentation. For me to experiment is to discover.
