Dry leaves rustled above my head, the winds of spring?
Young sprouts tickled my skin as I drew my face above the surface of the earth and into the breeze.
I felt it drawing, pulling me up, the earth surrendering my body, vines caressing my skin as they slipped lightly from my legs.
Blossoms drifted silently downward their petals fluttering in loving farewell.
“Come”, said the wind
“Be off”, said the earth.
“Embrace your being”, sang the universe.

My art celebrates being and explores the interplay of physical and spiritual experience. We are unique beings, for we are the creators and the dwellers and the essence of all that is.

    wonderful movement and freedom. is there a way you can put the writing on the other side?

  • Sorry I didn’t see this comment earlier. I haven’t been working on drawings for a while and don’t get over to this gallery as much. I like the idea of adding the writing to the back of the T. I’ll have to check with RB to see if it’s possible.
    Thanks for the idea and of course thank you again for your attention.

    addition: I was thinking this was a t-shirt. I meant the other side of the Ts
