Title : “Time’s a Tickin’”- Colored Marker and Ink on Paper - 24” x 18”


Tick, tick, tock, tock.

How quick the time goes by.

It seems that life is filled with chores

I cannot figure why.

Little helpers clean the pots.

A spill upon the floor.

The host brings in the tea.

“Ring”…someone’s at the door.

There really should be more of me

I let out a sigh.

The Maid, Host, Mother. Wife

And Artist deep inside.

Thus I spend my life and time

With Art and Family.

I love them both with all my heart.

They are the life in me.

The Backstory:

I was told by a dear mentor that when I began a family, I would have to choose between pursuing my Art Career, and being a Mother.

After all, it’s a beautiful life.


These next few weeks I will be posting portraits and poetry from my newest exhibition,

“Memoirs of the heart”. Highlighting family I focus on the essence of emotion, and the connection that binds us all ... the human heart.

Available for viewing during library hours.

Through March 28, 2020

Portrait workshop: Sat. 2/8/20 2-4pm

Closing reception: Sat. 3/21/20 2-4pm
