5th State

Our artists have added more layers to each of our six canvases – here are the results:

“A Lullaby”   Sleep, my daughter, sleep, and when you wake to everything that’s quick and breathes in every part of you, dream, my daughter, dream.  – Gary Gildner Limberlost Press  1995


“Ask Me”   You and I can turn and look at the silent river and wait. We know the current is there, hidden, and there are comings and goings from miles away that hold the stillness exactly before us. What the river says, that is what I say.      William Stafford (excerpt) You Must Revise Your Life 1989


“Refuge”  I see the lamp, the face, the eye, an altar where the soul bows, a gladness and refuge. My loving says, “Here. I can leave my personality here.” My reason agrees!  “How can I object when a rose makes the bent backs stand up like cypresses?”  The Soul of Rumi (excerpt) trans. C. Barks 2001
