The Gypsy fortells your future, good or bad, she tells all. A conversational artpiece, and many stories to predict and tell.

Gypsy – a poem by Carl Sandburg


I asked a gypsy pal
To imitate an old image
And speak old wisdom.
She drew in her chin,
Made her neck and head
The top piece of a Nile obelisk
and said:
Snatch off the gag from thy mouth, child,
And be free to keep silence.
Tell no man anything for no man listens,
Yet hold thy lips ready to speak.

Carl Sandburg

I so love to create! Especially with lots of color! Every piece I do has a story to tell. A very colorful story to share with all of you. Thank you for stopping by, and please enjoy these colorful stories!

    I love it! I grew up surrounded by my parents’ issues of the New Yorker. This would be right at home among its art.

  • My family so got into this stuff too! I believe artists in general have a certain developed sixth sense! Thank you again for your comments! ~H
