Still...Life

Memorial:Red,White and Blue©2009 C.L.Burgess oil on linen 8x6"

How important it is to walk along, not in haste but slowly,
looking at everything and calling out

Yes! No!

The artist is ever observant....we notice things others dismiss or neglect.
It is in wanting to talk about them that we lift the brush or write the poem.

I painted this because I liked the forms coming out of the darkness. And I wanted to remember.
