november 20th
i am peeling off the layers
of my soul-
bearing it all to you…
as an artist
i have revealed
that which i cannot
put into words
in my colorful silly way…
i have taken the scars
i carried my whole life
placed them upon canvas
and now invite you
to come
take a stroll
have a look
and maybe you
will find one
that speaks to your soul
and take it home…
this is what an artist does
we open ourselves up
to judgement
criticism
and
the truth
that we may be rejected…
we do it
over and over
because
for us
it is a calling
a needing to
release-
giving
our
life stories
wings…
you all know my story
of being born into blue
you see my whimsy side,
all listen to my truths…
some have read my book
and yes it will be there too
along with images of shells
turtles,
faith
and
memory-
this midwestern girl
came unglued!
i had so much fun
creating these paintings…
i used fabrics
inks,
paints
and hand sewed a few.
it’s a new sheri
with the old sheri
combined…
as an artist
yes, i grew…
i have all of you to thank!
you grace my studio
with your friendships
smiles,
struggles
losses
and laughter…
i feel honored and blessed
to have hosted your events
to teach you at my BYOB’s,
but mostly i feel grateful
for you are my friends
and this is my way
of giving back to you…
