The Pivoting Point

2021, acrylic on canvas, 12×12 inches

Will transformation. Oh be inspired for the flame

in which a Thing disappears and bursts into something

else;

the spirit of re-creation which masters this earthly form

loves most the pivoting point where you are no longer

yourself.

Rainer Maria Rilke (Sonnets To Orpheus)

  1. You really inspire me, you are an amazing artist and photographer and poet! And you have a great mom! I am one of her friends from the gym… there are four of us… we call ourselves the Fab Four!

  2. I love the painting. I have the good fortune to have seen it in person as well as the photo, and both are beautiful. With the Rilke quote in mind, I find myself aware of the powerful changes/transformations in the painting–the lovely sky and the central darker area–and I am reminded not only of the inevitably of change, but also the wholeness/completeness of the universe past, present, and now.
