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.

Babe

Weststrand - Westbeach 50 x 70 cm acryl on cotton canvas by Karin Goeppert



YOURS TRULY…ME

& then she left you.
The drift of formal decline,
structural flaws, cumulative neglect,
whatever.
You had been enjoying a modicum of fame
& no matter how undeserved, you savored it.
Always away on lecture tours, addressing
enthusiastic corporate execs, fund managers, even sending
into conniption fits of self-satisfied glee
                                                  the bristling cohorts of private equity.
You were taking self-improvement to unheard of lows.
I just didn’t want you to come home
while I was tying my shoe laces, that’s all, Sylvie—lovely,
lovely, and a wonderful cook—having absorbed most of my tension,
making coffee now. By the way, can you pay me back that
hundred bucks you still owe me & return my putting iron, a number
three, surely gone to rust by now in a damp corner of your garage?
Thanks for everything. Yours truly…me.
