gentle curve

in the land

on the shoulder

in the living

on the organism

one inch

one mile

Landscapes...of the Body

Lisa Kellner Drawing
Morning After; Lisa Kellner

I wake
to the gentle curve
 of a shoulder.

is my view
all encompassing.

The landscape
I love

I know you
so well.
I know
 so very little.

Let me draw

of you.

So I can 
know you better.

:Portraits of a Place
The Glacial Artist

the glacier moved the earth
to its liking
molding with monstrous force,
scouring the plains
shifting the bedrock

Millions of years

The Glacial Artist
has a different
time line.

Painting problems:

1.  How do I make a painting from non-painting materials?

2.  How do I get the "paint" to float above the surface?

3.  How do I make a painting of nothing...that is everything?

4.  How do I paint the sensation of complete calm.

5.  How do I give the painting depth?

6.  How do I incorporate cast shadow into the work?

Time is the keeper of change.
Change is the constant.
The city pulses with reinvention.
And what was old is new again.
Take a look; closer.
Remember the in-between.
When yesterday is obsolete and 
tomorrow hasn't happened yet.
Quiet beauty materializes in the selvage of a place,
brimming with the anticipation of rebirth.
