Three Poems – Eunoia Review

Three Poems – Eunoia Review

Today, I am happy to have three poems published at Eunoia Review! “The Classification of Rainbows,” “Requires Heavy Lifting,” and “Pavee” have found their home. I am pleased to see all three together, in such a well-represented venue. I have been a fan of poems published here for some time, and I feel privileged to be among those poets. (If you’re in a poetry-reading mood, and want to catch up with my other publications, click here.)

Succulent Pair (Digital)

Succulent Pair (Digital)

I happened to find the most lovely grouping of succulents about a week ago. These were such a sweet pair that I decided to draw them in Sketchbook Pro. It is likely that I will making sketches of succulents for awhile, as I took many pictures of lots of them. I love the colors and the ability to do such fun line work with such a deceptively simple shape.

European Landscape – Digital, line

European Landscape – Digital, line

This was a short study in using simple lines to convey depth and perspective. I didn’t pre-measure, just launched in to the drawing, using my hands and eyes. I am still working on developing the connectivity between what my eyes see and what I can bring to paper. I’m sure this is going to be an ongoing process, with many iterations, for the rest of my life. I’m happy with this because I was able to get so much out of it being minimal in my approach.

Sailboat in Marina (drawing)

Sailboat in Marina (drawing)

An ink drawing of an approximation of my sailboat at the opening of our marina. This started as a landscape, but I decided to include the boat. The perspective is off in places, but I like the composition. Not a bad drawing for not sketching first and making up the scene mostly from memory.

“Nature is Nurture” published in Burningword Journal

“Nature is Nurture” published in Burningword Journal

I have been sending poems out like a crazy lady lately. I must have thirty different sets of poems out in the world, in various inboxes of some very tired and underpaid editors. I found out via a tweet that my poem, “Nature is Nurture,” was published today in Burningword Journal. Yay, so happy. This is encouraging after a rather long string of rejections lately. I am also heartened because this is a recent poem—written only a month ago. Below is a screenshot taken from the publication.
