Ut Pictura Poesis

An 8x10 1/2 inch pastel of the Caves Trail at Field Farm.

One final quote from Charles Wright:  "Poetry is not a reflection, of course, the famous mirror up to Nature.  It is a reconstruction, which is why style is so important: as you rebuild, you rebuild in your own way.  And which is why nothing is ever 'this' or 'that' but is 'toward this' or 'in the direction of that.'  Rearrangement and reassembly.  Painting knows this.  Ut pictura poesis: new structures, new dependencies."
