‘when a word doesn’t mean what you think it means’

not in a premeditated way.
instead, present,
to the fullness and fury
of life
pulsing through
this moment.

not in a way that
aims to control.
instead, a bold
letting go
into the flow
and freedom
of now.

DELIBERATE is an original mixed media painting collage i created as a part of a recent daily art practice i started recently. this one’s a bit of a mark making exploration. acrylic, oil stick, graphite, and gold leaf on a delicate vintage japanese book page. all mounted on a 9”x12” canvas wrapped board.

this little text fragment found in an old book, inspired the poem above:


‘yes’, i said.”

i ship the piece in a protective plastic sleeve and it can be displayed as is on a shelf or fireplace mantle. it would look great framed as well.

initialed on the front. signed, titled and dated on the reverse.

the piece will be packaged with care and shipped securely via USPS. i ship 24-48 hours from purchase during business days. you will receive a tracking number.

thank you for taking an interest in my art! i will happily answer any questions and requests for custom work.
