Foal

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Here is another picture and poem from Sarah Potter. She did both for her best friend because she missed her while she visited Florida. The originals were given as gifts when she returned home.

Her BF loves dappled horses and blue eyed horses, so Sarah added both in the image and poem.

Art and poetry by Sarah Potter

“Foal (Named Leopard)”

Little filly
Run like wind
Faster than the colts.
Shining golden
Dappled fur
Glows in the
Morning light.
Eyes of blue
And sky of blue
Leopard wants
To touch the sky.
Springing high
Above the ground,
Horse-child
Can you fly?

Waiting for the Cue

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

As mentioned somewhere before, Kathy is a Kabuki theater devotee. I’ve never seen a single performance so anything I “know” about it is second-hand and undoubtedly garbled by my ignorance. With that apology out of the way, this recently disinterred pencil drawing was done a decade ago and, if I recall correctly, represents humanity as each of us waits to make our entrance onto the Great Stage. There are other things delineated there, too, but that’s the most pompous and pretentious. And what’s a ham actor without showy and self-centered pretenses?

The title says it all, so what else can I add? Apparently a lot. Neither Kathy nor Sarah understand this piece. I could try explaining it, but I feel if it takes a thousand words to describe a picture then that picture is a failure. Ah well, at least I know what I’m trying to say and sometimes that’s good enough.

Forbush Man

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Wheeler Hall, the mastermind behind this site and OK, Panic, is one of the nicest and most generous gentlemen you’d ever want to meet. I’m not just saying that to butter him up so he’ll forgive the twenty bucks I owe him. I’m also saying it since he won a contest at “The Break-Ins,” a podcast hosted by Bruce O. Hughes and Justin Wasson. For his prize, Wheeler requested an original Justin Wasson rendition of Forbush Man so he could present it to Sarah, a devotee of all things Forbushian. Isn’t that sweet? I think so, too. Thanks, Wheeler! For something else that’s sweet, you can admire Mr. Wasson’s coloring of this piece at JUSTINWASSON.COM.
