“Hearts on Fire” ** First completed piece from the new studio.

The first piece of the new studio has been completed and for that I am thankful. In many ways I’m like a child in my mind. Each time I take a leave of absence from the paint I fear I may have forgotten how each time I return.
Even though I’ve spent a lifetime dedicated to the Arts there is still that fear that somehow my mind, hands and heart will somehow have lost touch with each other. Today I give you

This is not the most textual nor detailed piece I’ve ever done. As a matter of fact I tried to keep it simple and let the paint do the talking.

There are some words that are associated with this piece, please if you will read the words and hold them inside as you look at this painting, then I hope you will get a greater depth of this work.

Hearts on Fire
There is calm that you bring to my busy mind
That no other can bestow.
A gentleness that flows from your heart
And fills my worried soul like no other.
It is with these simple and humble hands that I do paint and write these words of heart strings and things.
These visions of color given weight
By the heart behind them.
There is no measure of thanks or soft words to imply the depth of my heart to yours or the length at which my soul soars amongst the angels in heavens high.
So for that I let my words and paint fill that void of “Hearts on Fire”

  1. Yes – I can see and feel this piece. The second photo above looks like a person – lying in the midst of chaos, beauty, calm – fire can be all of these things and I can sense them in this painting.

  2. oh, so beautiful and i see that your vision is already springing from your new place on this earth. place is very important i believe. i love the color and the words. how apt, your title for this beauty of yours, for in it, i not only see the spiky measures of a heart’s ekg, the scientific measure of a heart, but i also see the fire and the passion and the love and pain and joy in it, the emotional measure of a heart.

  4. I love this! The art in this reminds me of scenes from the music video below, whose title I believe is a play on the word “Worrying”. Your poem reminds me of the lyrics as well, which I’ll share too!

    “Whirring”
    by The Joy Formidable

    This much delight, fills columns to new heights
    All these things about me you never can tell
    Colors run prime, paint a picture so bright
    All these things about me you never can tell
    You make me sleep so badly invisible friend

    Turn the dial on my words
    I can feel they fall short
    Turn the dial, chime alarm, chime alarm
    Watch these hands move apart
    Turn the dial on my words

    I can see you staying here

    Fierce steps shadow, life’s will gone shallow
    All these things about me you never can tell
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend

    Turn the dial on my words
    I can feel they fall short
    Turn the dial, chime alarm, chime alarm
    Watch these hands move apart
    Turn the dial on my words

    I can see you staying here
