Back Soon

I've just spent the last four days visiting with in-laws and tomorrow evening I'll be flying home to see my family in the UK.  I am an anxious traveler and wish for the day when I can just be teleported somewhere without all the hassle of flying.  Still, despite the stress, I am excited to see everyone. 
Right now I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get all those last minute chores and errands done.  There's been a lot of cursing and wrestling with luggage so that its not over the weight limit.  Think I've finally won.
I'll be absent from blogging for a few weeks but I hope you all enjoy the rest of October and I look forward to catching up with everyone when I return.

Bolts of Self-Deception

pondering wanders with absent mind
arms outstretched
fingers trailing blindly
the dark dank sides of spiral's braille

elbow of momentum at your back
allure of gravity to your fore
the magnitude of obscurity
compressing distorted assumptions

reflections fail to consume the pitch
of sharp keys turned to unlock nothing
as bolts of self-deception echo

Photo Heart Connection: September

Strolling along outside, camera in hand, is one of the best distractions so the other day, when I wasn't feeling all that great, I decided to venture outside.  
I may have been feeling ill and only managed a short walk but nature showed me there's always something to smile about, if I'm open to it.
Not entirely sure what kind of caterpillar this is but it was truly beautiful.  The way the raindrops covered its body made it look like it had been bedazzled by nature.

Truth Of Wrongs

the living weight
of a meaningless phrase
repeated one too many times
forms a truth of wrongs
unable to turn right

True Gift

the past holds a mirror
the future a glass ball
but the true gift
is that of the present

Inside Dyche Designs Studio: Studio Blog Hop

Many of you are used to seeing my artwork in its finished form but today I wanted to share a peek into what goes on behind the scenes.

I'm pretty heavy handed with the brushes and tools I use to create my art and I love to get messy . . .
You know I'm all about the texture so here's a glimpse at what's on my table right now.

Work in progress . . . . .

My office table . . . . .

Storage and mailing supplies . . . . .

I love to have artwork up on the walls in my studio..  A few pieces are my own . . . . .
. . . . . but a lot of it is work by other artists whose work I love and admire and objects I've found myself drawn to.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit.  Won't you join me in stopping by Seth Apter's blog The Altered Page where you can explore the unedited version of many other artists studios.
