Near Five Corners

This one's actually all corners, corners of fields, mountains, house and road. 9x12 on colourfix suede.

I have been immersed in Emily Dickinson lately, reading through Helen Vendler's new book of commentaries. Emily must have been quite a character. When she said something, men responded, "What?"

She wrote:

The Inner - paints the Outer
The Brush without the Hand -
Its Picture publishes - precise -
As is the inner Brand -

I want to give this stanza my own meaning - in terms of painting on a surface other than the face and eyes.

All corners and very successful, Bob - this piece works very nicely.

Brian, Thanks. I think maybe it can be a bit more subtle, but that will be in the next piece.
