#10 stay for a while...

it took so long to get here,
why not stay for a while
turn upside down
try a new style


tissue paper and cellophane collage by suzi poland


a slight shift of colour,
adding a hue,
after all where you’re from,
not everything is blue.


gesso and acrylic humpback whale by suzi poland


try simplifying things,
paring it back
blocking in colours
outlining in black


gouache and graphite dolphins by suzi poland

grab one more sheet of paper
just before you're done
really start playing
do something for fun


gesso, gouache, acrylic and ink mermaid by suzi poland


there's so much down here,
so many ways
now that you're here,
you could stay here for days

but

tomorrow we'll leave
it's time, we have to go
imagine if you'd never come
what you'd never know


please continue on to #11 heading back to shore, the next post in my "winter's blog tale" or back to #9 sinking not drowning or read the postscript with all the links.

Hmm... Yes... That's what I'm doing :) Staying, savouring, getting proficient ;)

Love all the different artwork you have created to go with your beautiful poetic words. Love the colours in the humpback.
