sketchbook page detail

sketchbook detail - collage and ink

detail of a painting in progress


Grave mouths of lions
Sinuous smiling of young crocodile
Along the river's water conveying millions
Isles of spice
How lovely he is, the son
Of the widowed queen
And the sailor
The handsome sailor abandons a siren,
Her widow's lament at the south of the islet
It's Diana of the barracks yard
Too short a dream
Dawn and lanterns barely extinguished
We are awakening
A tattered fanfare

-Jean Cocteau
