Yesterday was the annual Hingham Arts Walk, I believe this is the 12th year of this event! It was a beautiful fall day for everyone to enjoy music, art demos, and more while strolling through downtown Hingham.
I did a live painting demo at La Petite Maison, where Nan has several of my paintings for sale in her beautifully curated shop. Of course I talked so much yesterday, it seems I barely painted 😉 . I love interacting with friends old and new and was thrilled that this painting (Table For Two) sold to one of my favorite collectors!
Dinner For Two, oil on board.
You are the bread and the knife,
the crystal goblet and the wine.
You are the dew on the morning grass
and the burning wheel of the sun.
You are the white apron of the baker,
and the marsh birds suddenly in flight.
However, you are not the wind in the orchard,
the plums on the counter,
or the house of cards.
And you are certainly not the pine-scented air.
There is just no way that you are the pine-scented air.
It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
maybe even the pigeon on the general’s head,
but you are not even close
to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.
And a quick look in the mirror will show
that you are neither the boots in the corner
nor the boat asleep in its boathouse.
It might interest you to know,
speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
that I am the sound of rain on the roof.
I also happen to be the shooting star,
the evening paper blowing down an alley
and the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table.
I am also the moon in the trees
and the blind woman’s tea cup.
But don’t worry, I’m not the bread and the knife.
You are still the bread and the knife.
You will always be the bread and the knife,
not to mention the crystal goblet and–somehow–the wine.
