"Spin the ink of a pen into a web of magical fairy dreams...." Ruth Van Alstine
"Wings" ~ a multi-media collage, hand-made wood crafted frame by artist and son. Ekphrastic poem mounted -
forehead pressed to pane,
sweet rose-scented breeze,
brilliant ruby tones meld,
shimmer a Summer's day
blossoms ripe to bloom,
sparrow on the wing,
unfettered, flies free.
(c) 2020 Ruth Van Alstine
"Blooms" - An ekphrastic multimedia artpiece made from upcycled materials to include a centerpiece broach, gems from old jewlery and real freshwater pearls. Inspired by broach, memories of tea served in a rose garden, and walking in the scattered sunlight of a warm summer's day.
Full pink-peachy blooms,
breeze thick with fragrance,
ramble on floral pathways,
stir a quiet writer's pen.
The first abstract painting done as a response to the lifting of mask restriction and in the joy felt to the relief of "light at the end of the tunnel" to the nightmare of the Covid Pandemic of 2020-2021. This was the beginning of an over six painting series with brush and palette knife.
River of Life - An abstract impressionistic painting of the light and darkness within (life experiences and emotions) and the flowing waters of life running through it. June 2021
