Go buy a copy. Poets and painters see differently I think, but both see things that others don't. The poem and painting together have a rich flavor. This is an honor for me because Jeanetta is a full time poet, writer, teacher and publisher, and to have a part-time painter's work accompanying her professional work is a validation of my work. I've written for the magazine before, and plan to again, but this is a really big deal for me. This version shows reflections, but the magazine's copy is a clear scan. P.S. Yes, it's for sale.
I found this old barn driving around on the backroads east of here one Saturday--one of my favorite pastimes. It was decaying away, and the light wasn't good, but it helped me be free with color, and I could embellish the composition as I wished.
