My experiments with matching images and text continue to produce surprising results, including this one. In addition to an early poem titled "The View from Where We Love," Rainbow Mountain was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's and Claude Monet's passions for working outdoors to produce creative impressions of landscapes and of nature in general. The original poem placed a romantic relationship within the context of a shared spiritual journey.
I thought about the shared journey aspect recently when hearing more reports of more hate crimes against various communities. I took some comfort in the idea that Love & Beauty in all their many forms have survived one atrocity after another all these centuries and undoubtedly will continue to do so. The following is the second section from the poem:
THE VIEW FROM WHERE WE LOVE
...At the bottom
I had started in stone boots
and forty-pound furs.
Half-way up, a pink wind
warm as an unborn spirit
pressed me teasingly
against a silver tree
After being born and raised in the southeastern United States, I spent many years, while pursuing my education and serving in the U.S. Air Force, traveling around America and the world. Much of that story is told in my recent book releases, Greeting Flannery OConnor at the Back Door of My Mind and Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah. Artwork by me is featured on the cover of both books.
My last 3 public exhibits were at the Savannah/Hilton Head Airport Art Gallery in Savannah, Georgia, USA, and during a cultural arts event in the historic Lafayette Square in the same city. I am currently completing an artbook project on the COVID-19 pandemic with text contributions from writers around the world.
