Once upon a time
a woman bought one of my little paintings.
When I came inside to meet her
she was surprised.
She said I did not look like what she expected.
Apparently, she did not look deep enough.
I look exactly like my paintings.
The painter and the painting are one and the same..
such is the power of art.
Art can reach beneath the surface
and reveal the truth and beauty that exists in all of us.
The body I walk around in has nothing to do with it.
