Gold/yellow, green, and purple with some white were the colours used here…the green didn’t like the purple as when they were close to one another they changed to a tan brown.

This is a painting I did a few years ago. The creation process is quite meditative and relaxing.

I took a photo of some parts of a tree. Later, I used an app to make it into an artpiece. By Pauline Harris

Notre Dame

Notre Dame 
A poem by Pauline Harris

The introduction was simple 
A hunchback man and a cathedral 
Songs were sung
People were helped
Some fears realized
And peace found
Within the walls
Where the Rose Window
Shined in glory
Grace befell upon all

Later on I began to see
The Gargoyles watching
Keeping the city safe
The angels and saints
Help to keep the watch
Peaceful in grace and song

During my visit
The reality awoke in me
In the distance on a canal boat
I saw the steeple and arches
As the boat moved closer
There were areas under repair
My heart sank some
As the outward beauty 
Was not for me to see

And then the walk to the front
Lots of people gathered 
Here and there, many excited
Just as much as me
Some were praying

The great Rose Window 
Up way up high
Dim on this side 
As the rains came down
Determined I pressed on
Through the archway of the door
I am in awe and take a deep breath

Artwork everywhere 
Statues, paintings, relics,
Carvings all detailing stories
Loads of people 
All wanting to take in this moment

And I turned my head
To see my heart leap 
My joyney now complete 
As the Rose Window shown
The richness of light
And blessed us all with the sight

Decades have passed
Since that one day
A fire struck the Cathedral 
Loosing it’s steeple
And much of the structure

But there is spirit 
That has been expressed
Although now in ashes
Wonderment will arise
Becoming compassionate love
Bringing the world together 
With grace, hope, and joy

The Paintbrush Called

Art supplies were nestled
All together on the bed
Ready for anytime
The call to come,
They would adhere
Looking at photos
And artwork around
Seeing something
Anything called my name
Nothing
And there sat the paintbrush
Feeling a little left out
Desiring more
Pick me up, it called
Setting up to paint
I felt this urge
Deep inside an image
Vaguely presenting itself
I took the brush
Slapped on some paint
And to the canvas
My hand was drawn
To images appearing
As each stroke
Led to more
Complete fluidity
And then ultimately
A completed art piece

By Pauline Harris

The Crayon

The Crayon
 
One day, I
Picked up the crayon
Interested in drawing
But not sure as of what
 
The crayon said,
‘Let us just see
What will be inspired
To be coloured’
 
The outcome is yet
Still out there
To be designed
And achieved
 
I hold the crayon
And dream up
What is to be drawn
Making the most
Of what is happening
And look forward
To tomorrow’s drawings
Whatever they may be
Allowing the inspiration
To guide me
And permit me
To be the best me
I can be
by Pauline Harris

Birth of …

An idea pops
Into the mind
Creating a ripple
Starting the process
Formation of pieces
Begin to transform
The notion into something
A sweet sadness washes
Over the creator
Bringing to develop
The newness
A new creation
Once formed in the head
Curiosity begins to take fold
As patience is needed
In the guiding moments
Wonders to become
A fulfilled substance
For all to relate
As the something
Is now been transformed
From idea to reality
By Pauline Harris
 
note: Rewritten from an old writing of mine:
sometimes i feel some sweet sadness wash over me… as festive fingers glide through to bring on something new… a new creation is meddling through my head… kinda curious…but am patiently awaiting…wonders to unfold one day…
