peinture

“When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”

– Howard Ikemoto

“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” – Pablo Picasso

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.”

– Oscar Wilde

peinture

canvas

neither blank

nor barren

elle est un taquinerie

knowing how

i must spread, smear and spackle

her porous skin

as vast

as the mind can explore

just beyond this

mortal’s reach

creamy, thick, luxurious

stories to be told and

lies with which

i seal

her fate

***

bisous,

léa
