Acrylic and charcoal on canvas (2017), 140cm x 160cm
Fortitude is part of my new collection of art and poetry themed around mindfulness, appreciation and gratitude. It explores the rhythms of connect and disconnect throughout our lives.
Together, on seas akiss with salt and spray (ascends)
through adventure (descends)
Leaning, on each other’s fortitude (descends)
with artless naivety (ascends)
with seasoned smarts.
The waves, of abundance washed upon us (ascends)
exploring shores (descends)
Until, under an umbrella of flocking seagulls (descends)
we watched the ferry (ascends)
come into dock.
