Newly Commissioned Painting, "Life Calmly Gives Out Its Own Secret"

Life Calmly Gives Out Its Own Secret
48" x 60"
Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas
Harvey Collection
Dallas, TX

You see, I want a lot.
Perhaps I want everything
the darkness that comes with the infinite fall 
and the shivering blaze of every step up.

So many live on and want nothing
and are raised to the rank of prince
by the slippery ease of their light judgments.

But what you love to see are faces
that do work and feel thirst.
You love most of all those who need you
as they need a crowbar or hoe.
You have not grown old, and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life clamly gives out its own secret.

-Rainer Maria Rilke
Das Stundenbuch
