Finishing touches for the show


I have been working on the poster and other finishing touches today for the Steeps show - it will be at Steeps Tea Lounge in June and features small paintings of animals, including wolves, owls, bears, buffalo, fox etc.

I named it "Spirit Animals".

Here is a poem by WW:

I think I could turn and live with animals,
they're so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,

not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,

nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.


("Song of Myself", Walt Whitman, 1819-1892)
