On her blue gessoed canvas
She brushes swaths of red
Splashes on the yellow
Orange from the mix
A lavender wash hosts
White stripes of clouds from trails
Her colors silhouetting trees
Geese and cranes flying free

She is an artist beyond compare! As are you, Tim.
Aw! We thank you, Dale.
Stunning gallery, beautiful illustrative verse combined for a gift for the eyes and soul.
Thanks for the wonderful comment, Maj & Sher.
Brilliant blues and purples! Your photos are a gift.
The lines triangular lines in the second photo are the subject of my next painting. Thanks, Timothy. I couldn’t photograph the ones I saw by moonlight.
I can’t wait to see it. Thanks, Cheyenne.
Lovely captures. Merry Christmas Timothy! 🎅🎄👼🛐
Thanks, Cindy. Merry Christmas.
Amazing ! ♥️
The sky’s are so beautiful, as is your poetry, Tim. Both, wonderful.
You’re welcome, Tim.
You have the best friends, Tim. An amazing artist that paints your sky and all the grease and cranes flying free. Lovely!!
I do. Thank I do. Thanks, Rebecca.
Lovely pics and verse!
Lovely words and colours.
Beautiful poetic imagery! I love the echelon of birds.
Thanks, Holly. Geese love to echelon even for short flights.
It’s fascinating the way they instantly follow the leader. I read why the phenomenon but forget
They are drafting off each other and change leaders to keep the flight going on long flights. It’s like an echelon in the peloton in bike racing. The leader pulls the pack for a little while, then goes to the back of the echelon and recovers for the next time he ends up at the front.
It’s amazing. They are smart!
I love the exhibition Timothy
Breathtaking work of artist, photographer and poet
The birds in flight almost touching the painter’s hand is simply marvelous. I can imagine him sitting at his revolving easel smiling as they venture to come close
GESSOED!!!…love the word, the sound is so familiar
Thanks for the wonderful comment, abvr. Gesso is the primer painted on canvas to prep the canvas for painting. If you know anything about painting on canvas, it’s familiar.
Oh, I absolutely delight, what a creative mix, poetry lines are exquisite, I wished to indulge myself more. Yes i understand the canvas, i also appreciated the word for the Afrikaans phonetic, which quickly translated means to sweeten, replacing the D at the end with a T instead.
So there i allowed myself.
Beautiful TImothy. In every way.
Thanks, Shey. How are holidays shaping up?
Lol.. I never a holiday. There you go!
You’re a holiday denier? Good on you. I keep my curmudgeonly countenance fine tuned this time of year. Grrrr!
Well our lives just go all the time you know. There’s always something. We help the family every week and sometimes there’s spanners in works that way. Last week I’d an offer on my backlist books and I signed them but the Viking one was still in bits cos I was re-editing it so there was midnight oil burnt on that. I do like making things difficult for myself.
Painter in great mood!!!! Poet has captured the mood, beautifully, in every way! Sigh…
The painter was in good form. She’s happy for the holidays. Thanks, Marina.
Oh, she was indeed!
Lovely photos and poem!
Beautiful images Tim.
Wooowww, these picture are amazing and very beautiful! Also your poem really goes well with them. Nicely written and photographed as usual 👌
You’re welcome! 😊
Thanks for lighting up my morning with your beautiful words and you haiku Tim!💖💖💖
Magnificent paintings indeed!😍
Nice sky especially with the pteros in flight.
Wonderful skies there, Tim.
Your painter does beautiful work, Tim, and I enjoyed your descriptive prose.
Dreamy poem and photos.
Those contrails give the impression something is shooting at those cranes!
Ha! Thanks, Brian.
The painter is quite talented. So is the photographer, and the poet. Thank you, Tim!
Thanks, Resa. I really appreciate you.
Oh that painter has been so busy! Mind you, so has the very clever photographer 🙂
What can I say…your pictures are stunning. And you’re getting to be quite the wordsmith as well.
