Clare


Clare walked into the woods they say,
And didn’t come out for 21 days.

Her complexion had changed
From peach to gray.
Her hair was tangled and smelled of decay.

She whispered to spiders and giggled with slugs
Her entire body was crawling with bugs.

Other folks might’ve thought her deranged,
But the town already considered her strange.

 
"Creepy Crawly Clare"
5x7 inches on canvas
 
Seems like a peculiar time of year to paint something like this somber lass, but I sat down to paint and she emerged onto the canvas along with her insect friends :)
 
 
I love her big, down-turned eyes.
 
 
It's a busy week....last week of school before Winter Break...so there are Holiday Performances and Class Parties, Snacks with Santa and Volunteer duties to look forward to....and a lovely Skype Art Date with this talented Lady :)
Is anyone else on Skype?  It's a great way to create and chat with your favorite Bloggy Buddies...check it out, if you're not.  Look me up if you are....my username is cameron.reutzel
 
 
 
I hope to fit some more painting in.  Felt good to add a new personality to my gallery of girls :)
 
Clare's waiting for someone who understands her in the shop now :)
 
I'll be by to visit soon....I promise!
 
Hugs,
Cameron

You poem made me smile and then it made me want to go on a hike. But when I come out of the woods, it is the other way around for me...I go in gray and come out peach and exhilarated. :)

Have fun skyping!
