From my sketchbook
Mixed Media on paper
This painting reminds me of how I often feel.
Words and words and words all around me,
Sometimes guiding me,
sometimes driving me crazy.
Sometimes I find them impossible to turn off,
especially when they are beating me down.
I try relaxing,
Then I remember,
and pick up a paintbrush,
and feel the paint glide across the canvas,
the color washing around me,
and once again there is peace,
and I can start again.
