Reflection~Completed

vetus anima:
As the stars track clockwise through the heavens I’m reminded of these new changing times. Reflections of my past giving chase to tomorrows memories and dreams.
For whom shall I be now that I am once again free to be me, who is this knight of pure heart and black soul, Cast down from the heavens eons ago. Left to wander these time in paint and prose. Of lovers lips and and sunken ships that have sailed so long ago.
I search for myself amongst these things we think we need and wonder how and why and who am I.
I’m left with lineage, love anguish and tremor. Pain and paint,passion and woes. But this my friend is where my garden grows. From ashes and fire from human desire. These are the things I’ve become. Of drink and desire and maddening rage, one name, one word my love for I am he.
Benjamin,.. is all that I be.
**This poem was written 2013 but I find that it still holds true.

As always thank you for joining me here, my home away from home… The studio. Reflections Is part of the “Love Language”
Series. This piece utilizes the panels natural grain helping the piece attain a water like consistency as the piece flows. Here I’ve used both a pallet knife and a number of brushes and scrapers to both add and manipulate the paint and added texture.
Please take a moment and reflect with me, this life, these times, days and minutes are only here for a brief time. Enjoy them, be thankful for the painful roads, the happy times and fill your day to day with memories upon which at your time you too may reflect upon.
Smile and be filled with the joys and lessons of your past.
