a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Walking...

The bone hung on rusted barbed wire.
I wondered why.
I remembered O'Keeffe
and thought why not.
The lady who knew micro 
before the camera did
 painted bones
and flowers 
closer than we perceived.
Her eye zoomed 
and I wondered
where would she zoom here
.
What beauty would she see in the small?
Ki-Anne watched.
I O'Keeffed her.
And returned home to paint.
Not O'Keeffe
only Crazy on Cardboard...
cheaper than canvas
and biodegradable.

most interesting Gail. I see many of the colours on cardboard that you saw with your eyes. I like the easy chair in the forest- shows you are totally relaxed within your forest. NICE

I enjoy the way you use color. I wonder if your environment has a major influence on that.

Cracked up when you O'Keeffed Ki.
