Another Mutilation

if you press your head
to the muddy ground,
you'll see that it's almost obvious

the sounds, the screams
are just about there,
within the cloak of the oblivious

the blinding light is
as mind-numbing as could be
it's so humbling, but it can't
be reached today

tongue-tied and lost for words
thoughts are broken and
so are lives,
but dreams are hands in clay

Visit my Current Featured Painting "app 4 disgruntled days". It was currently added to my site on April 2013. Also, visit my Archived Featured Paintings, I have about 20 Previous Featured Paintings. Each one of them has a story, a description about their creation as well as some background about their form, content and symbolism. Looking at the Previous Featured Paintings page I realize that I have had a wide range of interests over time in the figurative, narrative work that I have created over the years. I hope you can appreciate that an element that ties my work together is my desire to create thought provoking compositions that involve the figure, rich colors, and, often, the human theater.

If you enjoy the Featured Paintings know that it is updated three times per year on April, August and December. Please do return !
