Last Friday I went to an art opening at the Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook. It was one of those spur of the moment things - I saw an email notice about it while I was having my morning cup of coffee and it sounded interesting so I went after work. It was awesome and I was blown away. The work just spoke to me and inspired me on my art journey. This is the art journal page I created and poetry I wrote to express my feelings that night.
The Art Opening
Capturing the feelings from Friday night
just being inside the art gallery
the lithographs of trees on rice paper
stretched gossamer-like from ceiling to floor
swaying gently as i went walking through
looking up with wonder and amazement
i felt myself come alive with feeling
in the presence of art that spoke to me
whispering my name softly in a dream
i heard you calling me to come closer
and felt peace as you gently touched my soul
knowing that you bring much joy to my heart.
