Drops of ink (tumbling walls)

Most of my inspiration comes from the people around me – friends, family – the environment I find myself in, books I read, blog posts, sometimes even individual words… My work is eclectic, though the one thing I can predict about my artistic creations is that, at heart, they are inspired by some facet of beauty or human experience (sometimes both). This is my latest art/poetry pairing, inspired by lovely blogger Angie over at SoAngieWrites. I love that Angie is loving writing (as I do too!) and I thoroughly enjoyed creating the image, which was done with watercolour paint applied (mostly) with a dip pen – a first for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Drops of ink

(tumbling walls)

for Angie

Drops of ink, blue waterfalls,

captured by the blank white page:

evidence of tumbling wallsย โ€”

secret thoughts exposed to sight.

Those crumbling walls torn

down with speed need not now be rebuilt.

The milk-white page, born

reborn, is home enough for now.

  1. It is hard to express how honored I am to be considered inspirational. Thank you so much for your lovely words and your artwork. Stunning. Writing has become my home. And I work daily to push further in personal growth. Thank you for capturing that in your words. It means so much. <3

    1. You’re welcome Angie ๐Ÿ™‚ It was a pleasure to create the above, and I look forward to reading more from you. XXX

      p.s. (and I know what you mean about writing becoming your home – I feel a lot like that too).
