"Green Poems, Laid in Dark Store, Wither and Grow Soft, like Unturned Apples in a Loft".
Sometimes I do "Inside Work". It is usually mixed media and often responds to some bit of writing or a poem or music. This quote - which just couldn't be shortened for the title - is one that I find rings so true for me when I am waiting for inspiration to paint. There may be none - just paint and it might happen. Writers and painters are often similar in process. If you wait for the perfect complete moment, your green ideas will wither away.
