Owl Head

I am a Performance Artist

My Easel is a Set Up

I decide 2 colours

2 basic strokes

2 directions

but there are no guarantees

 

My Outfit is a clingy black nightgown

protected

by a new kitchen apron

Black Ankle Sox

adorn My Feet

My Teeth are brushed

but I am

unbathed

    Artist’s Hint: The two stalagmite forms at the base of the painting could be seen as two Islamic women conversing at the mouth of a cave.

      Thank you for your comment, Jackie. What’s funny about the Islamic women is that I had no intention of painting them — they just appeared. The one on the right looks as if she’s in profile, facing the one on the left.

      And I might as well say here that I DID deliberately paint the diagonal green “rod” shape to indicate a parrot feather.

      Again, thank you for your strong comment. Your comments always give me a boost.

    The end of your poem made me laugh.

    It somehow reminded me of myself.

      Jill, I am overwhelmed by your expressions of how you can relate to my work. They really mean a lot to me.
