The Boat.Charcoal on Paper. 70 cm x 50 cm (approx). SOLD

Isolation is the gift; all the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it despite rejection and the worst odds and it will be better than anything you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods and the nights will flame with fire."

~ Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

That Old Bungalow

Whenever I walk through North Road, I stop by these gates
And I peer inside

 Trying to see as much as I can
 Through the dense foliage
 Ferocious growth
 And tangled vines
 I glimpse a dark window here
 An old fountain there.
 But the merciless verdure pushes me back
 And I retreat
 Turning back for one last look
And another
Before going my way.
