In this blog we will share with you our vision of beauty, balance, harmony.

As Mark Leach writes in his book Raw Colour with Pastels: “Sound is all around us, and it is musicians who refine that sound into something of beauty. As a painter, I have always felt that my purpose is to craft colour in a similar way, to see through the confusion and seek harmony and beauty.”

And we add: Words, fragments of sentences, spoken noise is all around us, and Ken arranges words in such a way as to capture beauty in the accidental, the ambient soundtrack of life.

Waiting for Thunder

Warten auf Donner - Waiting for Thunder 50 x 70 cm


I can barely conceal my contempt, boredom,
and a creeping self-pity not so much
shameless as triumphant. Dinner guests I’ve known,
I feel, since the latter days of the Roman Empire
are partly responsible for this. The air is thunder
heavy and the thermometer’s about to have a heart attack
and I have a strange need to break out in archaic verse
O Iseult, shave thy body of excess hair/ And toss
thy pelt upon the soft evening air, etc.
Even violence seems an option as I 
wait for that perfect implement of destruction
to find its way into my hands. It’s eighty-degrees
in the bed room. The world has forgotten how to breathe.
The cats are door mats made of fur. Clouds pressing down 
so close there’s no oxygen left. If rain does come, I swear  
I just might blossom. Talk about Flowers of Evil! Then you,
Iseult, will have no choice   
but to stick me into a leaky   
Moroccan vase the color of Saharan sand and inside which 
I will cool my toes, dreaming of windy, sane mornings in September. 

 Leider hat uns Blogger gestern einen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht und wir konnten unseren post nur "leer" veröffentlichen. Bitte entschuldigt!

Sorry for the empty posts yesterday. Blogger was unable to send it out correctly.
