Somewhere in December I hit a painting wall,
so I took some time off, didn't even think about it.
But I became obsessed with a color--
a deep purply black.
I only saw it in my mind's eye, and I don't know why,
but when I returned to my studio I painted this.
I've been painting thicker and faster.

I suppose the lesson is than when stuck
it really can help to step back, take a breath,
to let my mind, and my eyes,
and my mind's eyes
