"Mastering the Mistral"
Mastering the Mistral was part of the "Facing Darkness" art show. The original is 48"x60" acrylic on cotton canvas. It is also available as a giclee on cotton canvas with a mirrored gallery wrap of 1 1/2" or a giclee on paper.
I write Ekphrastic poetry to go with my paintings. Here are my thoughts on
Mastering the Mistral:
Lone warriors, we feel alone
An echo of a moan
Surrounded by uncertainty
Rumblings of anarchy
Defenseless from the elements
Wearing only facial helmets
Like a jib backwinding, we feel out of control
We want no more patrol
Waves crashing upon us we cannot imagine the future
Will we ever master this wind of the Mistral
Or is the Corona Virus just a mis-trial to test our resiliency
