IMBUING NOSTALGIA/PORTRAIT

Hello there, it's another Friday and the start of what would hopefully be a great weekend.

Yesterday, I was freestyling and testing brushes to warm up. I tend to know 80% of what I want to create before I start painting but with one stroke after another and my warm exercise started developing into an interesting idea.

The Process

Art and Words
I have titled the finished painting "Imbuing Nostalgia". Art can inspire words and words can inspire art. On "Imbuing Nostalgia", I wrote:

A mourning metaphor decays
even the very essence of it's
existence.
The sanguine bells,
I no longer hear.
Come with me to see the stain of memories.
The cold hand on my shoulder as
I long for the past.>

The End

Thank you for your attention.
