Walking Sticks


This is a series of linear brush mark paintings, some with poetry and prayer that I’ve written.

The lines are painted from bottom to top, mostly with my non-dominant hand. I like the awkwardness of my left hand markings. Pairs well with my right hand brush work. 

The close-up photograph (click ‘full story’ at end of poem) is the poem I wrote for this piece which is scribed near center of canvas:

white tip feathers

an arrow




fly with me
