As a child, I didn’t know what to make of my mother’s wild brush strokes. She didn’t title this painting, so the subject is a mystery. Still, I loved to stare into the flaming colors, and, like many of her paintings, this one inspired a poem in my collection, Secret Formulas & Techniques of the Masters.
The book is now available from Brick Road Poetry Press and other booksellers. Here’s info: Secret Formulas & Techniques of the Masters.
