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.

Lost in the Woods

Treeline - pastel by Karin Goeppert


Something’s seeping through the cell’s wall.
Perhaps a minor disturbance
an interior monologue
going on a little too loudly, a touch too long,   
something blooming in a syringe maybe
becoming an object of study, or an x-ray of your system
invaded by extraterrestrials.
And all you want, all you need
actually, and as soon as possible, is a drink—     
but it has to be in the right neighborhood—
a hut, say, on top of a 
mountain near Munich
where you order a tall cold beer
from a short warm woman, put your feet up on a chair 
with hearts carved into its hard wood—and sigh—
and wonder where your shoes went, and how the grass
got so green, and how good it feels on bare feet the grass  
lifting you even as you flatten the prickly green blades,
wonder if this young, somewhat overweight waitress
dressed in a Dirndl (a word with a vowel
missing in action, mutely crying for help in a dark German wood),
knows where you are going, and how you will get there.
