Balanced

Monochromatic Stillness
when the art world 
clashes
with my studio world
I quiet the discord by
creating these paintings.

I can tell how chaotic my
world is by the way the lines flow.
If I get bad news,
I take a deep breath,
go to my studio and make
these clean, crisp lines.

The act of creating these paintings
clears my mind.

My process: I take acrylic paint
and drip it on the paper.  In order to 
achieve these lines, there has to be 
the right combination of spontaneity,
free flow, calm, and control.  

Perhaps these are my emotional writings?

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
