Back Ground

This is the part of me that most of my friends say isn’t me. But it’s the me I know. It’s the me that didn’t have a voice. It’s the me that wasn’t noticed – although the scowl of my early years was duly noted and compared to my father’s – not a victory of any sort. But it is the funny part of me, the me that can laugh – I was laughing when I painted this portrait!

and this one –

and in this one I was moved to be with my beloved dog Zoe, just as she was, skin to skin

and yes, of course, I’m hiding behind her – in plain sight and faceless
the kid in me informing the adult
the fur beneath the skin
showing my love and loving obscurity
fire & ice = water
and a thirst is quenched
