Fragments III #131  30″x30″  gouache on watercolor paper



The Widow Sits by the Window
Paint, painted, painting
A world of color
A carefree spree
Insider, outsider
Who is to say
Who uses the paint

The widow sits by the window
Remembers intimate moment
Written on the heart
Held in the body
Personal landscape
A Vermeer painting

Her life a fearsome
Still life
Since he went away
The studio her reserve
The part that is her own
To use the paint
As she chooses

Prompt: paint, use, sprees, outsider, away, fearsome,
part, reserves, body, intimate, writt

  1. Thankfully we have our art, painting and words, to immerse ourselves in. I love the idea of a “personal landscape”. The bright colors in your painting are wonderful, Annell. Very lively.

  2. And how fearsomely she uses that paint and her words..i love the repetition of the widow sits by the window..somehow it has a universal feel..as if we can be widowed and abstracted from life in many different ways x

  3. As it should be, Annell. Beautifully said. Congrats on your recent art shows, the handmade red shoes book. I am so happy for you.
