“Cherry Blossoms On the Wall”










My mission as an artist is to create art that elevates the soul...my art addresses issues in this world using materials and ideas that enhance and uplift the viewer...and to transport you out of this sometimes depressing and drab existence and into a world of beauty, positive emotion, and wonder.”



April is National Poetry month. Poetry is usually read silently to oneself but it’s always a delight to hear a poet read well. I’ve always loved sharing my poems in this manner by reading my poems at what is called “open mics”. I learned how to read poems out loud, what is called “Oral Interpretation of Literature”, way back in a college English class. My poem of the month, “Painting With Words” talks about another kind of reading, from the Bible, in church. Did you know that a lot of passages in the Bible’s Old testament are considered poetry? Especially what we know as the “Psalms”. Doing these readings, at first, had me anxious because a reader must use only ones voice to convey the emotion of the passage. I’ve been doing it now for over 8 years and love the challenge.

Spring is also cherry blossom time. This year it seems like the cherry trees are holding their breath up here in NJ. Washington DC has already exploded with color, here only a few of the really early species have bloomed. Oh well, to satisfy my craving for their pink beauty, I created my own cherry blossoms with this collage!
