On this blog, a companion to "ArtSoPotent," I will write about the connection between visual art and other art forms, including cinema, dancing, poetry, and specifically music. This space will also serve to display images of my commercial work: Calligraphy, Collage, Note Cards, Hand-painted boxes, Handmade books,and other mixed-media works.

What I Paint To

Sometimes I paint to music
Listening as I go
But then again to silence
Which I most know

Sometimes I paint to doubt
That old enemy
Sometimes to weariness
Trying to hold me

But lately I paint to strength
Coupled with energy
Joined by fast faith
With trust for company

Today I painted to love
In all its colors and hues
Today I painted to love
Which I lately choose

Brought

To do firm the thing
To push forth the thought
To strive fast to bring
To life what is sought

And let prayer precede
That which is brought!
