1A Heart Floats: a poem

A Heart Floats

Sometimes there is no attraction.

Sometimes the eyes do not lock.

Sometimes there is no mutual smile.

No blush, extra heart beat or shock.

A heart floats around life, like in a party,

With a glass, empty, wanting to be filled.

Seeking another heart that holds a bottle of nectar

To be shared between beautiful friends.

In between those times we live.

Often thinking of opportunities missed.

Hoping fate will smile upon us,

allowing the two hearts to be joined again.

Underwater Volcanic Pressure- Acrylic on Canvas

 

I have been working with themes lately. I find that having a theme in mind keeps a person like me much more on track. As a creative-type, my process can be wandering due to my constant desire to explore, learn, and try new things.

This is my latest work, entitled: “Underwater Volcanic Pressure”

I wanted to capture an imagined view of magma trapped between two giant tectonic plates, by blending blues greens and bright orange with yellow.

The size is a bit small at 12 x 24 inches. If I could go back, I would had made this a bit larger, as I really like the way the orange magma turned out, and I would have liked to see it spread out on a wider canvas.

Right now I am enjoying using bright orange to contrast with dark blue in my work, so I am very excited to see how this will evolve in my next few pieces.

Thanks for stopping by,
