Leaning Into The Grey


An original painting from the four year wild fire collection.

Acrylic and pencil on paper, 8″ x 10″, 2020.


“Making sense of feelings and thoughts.


Leaning into the grey?

When all you know changes,

challenged to your core,

the world is shaking,

voices roar.


Black, old patterns

white, breaking free.

Let responsibility drop,

let me, love me.


Bonds, you don’t choose.

Families that grow.

Black, to respect?

White, to say no.


White, to understand,

the pain, the key.

Black, darkness,

frightens me.”
