I have been writing and painting most of my life. I have had this idea for a long time and finally started yesterday painting using symbols from my poetry, lyrics, journal writings, etc. I used symbols from, "Sunshine Wind," a few lines here:
"My heart lies on a rainbow
Above a river of gold,
Leading to a place behind the sun
Where young never turns old."
(copyright by Nancy Shewchuk)
The entire poem can be read on my website:
Click on the "Automatic Writing" category and then on the "Misc." link.
My plan is to keep painting using symbols from my writings and turn them into a book.
This is an 8x10 in acrylics done with palette knife.
