Fireplace and Girl Painting

fireplace and girl painting

I guess this was painted in the 1990’s
Yep it’s a girl combing her hair in front of a fireplace…..This Painting has been viewed a lot over the years on the net. It resides in a dear friend’s house. I poured Gesso onto water color paper and tore pieces of paper and pushed them into the Gesso and added more until there was a very rough surface. I like to paint on a rough surface..It adds texture.

Corn Cake Lady Poem by Dandelion de la Rue

The Corn Cake Lady


The predawn sidewalk

gray and cold

just me, just me

and a thin brown dog

sniffing at a

pile of motley treasure.

I stumble by

hoping he has

struck it rich.


But up ahead,

some warmth waves deck the

grim gray sky.

The corn cake lady

street grill sizzling

flipping corn cakes

filled with thick

and gooey cheese,

so hot, so greasy,

so strong.


The sidewalk’s warmer now,

and happier,

as I move on,

Eating half

And leaving half

for the thin brown dog.

Sounds Poem


When she whispers
like the sounds a skirt makes,
the sounds the leaves make,
the sounds the wind makes
early, when the birds sing like
the peaceful sound of the brook
when she speaks
like the rain itself
on the roof,
it’s the sound the sunshine makes
in the yard,
the sound the moonlight makes,
the sound of a kind thought,
the sounds the clouds make,
and the sounds the sun makes
setting and rising
