"Her strokes varied in length, she
darkened the ochre colour
Reinstated lines formed
angles and confidence.
Competence.
Umber Initial observations fell
underneath revision
Her hand darted and sped
, vivid between paper palette and
cup. She looked at the model up in
brief This rhythm repeated for
ten minutes, specified.
Her body, still besides right
arm hands and Eyes taking
the view all in.
Ultramarine represents
, added emotion
Her interpretation is forgiving
, She expresses the living and
the solitude of the subject’s place
in the room."

They are horizontal atop me, she is awake

He is sleeping. Still, only beats and breaths and

flickers He sees beneath lids and lashes. She moves

, slightly Reacts to his lack of interaction with softness

Motions on his shoulder

, then rests again.

They are content in me,

“To claim that language offers a direct connection to the artist’s ideas is not different in kind from the claim that a brush stroke, or a drip, offers a direct connection to the artist’s emotions.”—Mel Bochner
