Art in the streets


Ah, Elizabeth, you’ve left your art folios in the street.

I’m unsure whether you’ve abandoned your studies [tsk, so early in the year], or these are from last year [tsk, littering].

I felt so guilty when I saw these folios. I’ve got similar abandoned works where I’ve seen the glint of a prospective business or creative opportunity. I’ve explored it, developed it, and when I finally see that the well is dry, I put it to one side and move on. Twenty years slide by to the sound of laughter and tears, the music of delight and sadness. I find my work in a box somewhere and I’m moved by how good the potential was and how I was unable to move it up to the next level.

I feel amazed and happy that at that time I had the skills.

And then I feel sad and frustrated for the loss of the potential.

As ever, time steals it all away.

Elizabeth, I have your portfolios in my studio. If you want them, please contact me.
