I was inspired to create Turquoise after re-reading an excerpt from one of my own poems… here it is:

Sometimes I feel the pang

  • wanting; not being wanted
  • needing; not being needed…

He laughs~
I’m no woman (He says)
I’m a freak
and there’s not going to be
any relationship

When will people realize,
I can change my cover
still be a good book,
turn inside out
and be the woman
any man would want?

Maybe the time is near,
when the color of my skin,
or the shape of my body,
will not make a measurable difference
in how well I am loved.

This excerpt is from my poem The Fantasy of a FAT Girl

This is a mixed media painting made with Intense pencils, and acrylic, and glitter on Canson watercolor paper.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
