Artist's Description

Shameless Self Promotion Group on 9/26/2011
Contemporary Pastel Painters Group on 9/28/2011
One’s Mind’s Eye on 7/18/2015

Drawing in charcoal, conte crayon, colored pencils and pastel on 18 X 24 Canson drawing paper.

I heard the music of Kevin & beginning guitarist K. I asked if I could write and record lyrics and melody. They gave their kind permission and the song was born. As ekphrasis goes it just rolled forth into this image and into the video. Not a perfect fit but I like it.

Thru the shadows
Is there something sweet kept in there?
Will it be something that I can share?
Or will it bring something cold
dark and forbidding as I go?
With the sun shining from the front
From behind here they come

Thru the shadows mystery resides
Who can ever tell what those shadows hide?
The only thing that stems the shadows’ tide
Is when the sun finally retires

Thru the shadows something broods
Keeping step with my every move
Speaking to it sometimes serves to soothe
As I keep trying to elude

But even in the dark of night
Though their nowhere in sight
I know the shadows wait for the light

Thru the shadows something follows I don’t know
Something follows as I go…
