Somewhere I Have Never Travelled

20" x 30" x 1.5"
Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas

Just finished this painting. I wonder if it going to be the last one before baby arrives next week. I decided to call it
"Somewhere I Have Never Travelled", after my favorite ee cummings love poem. The piece has a dreamlike serenity that reminds me of tide pools and sea glass. It combines elements of my cellular abstractions with a lot of the modern landscapes I have been working on. I feel like it captured exactly where I am as an artist right now.

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
