August Redux 2013 – a beginning



“What we call the beginning is often the end.

 And to make an end is to make a beginning.

 The end is where we start from.”

T.S. Eliot.

    1. This is true Jo Nell, I’ve never been a ‘nature’ artist as such although I have spent much of my life in the wildness of the bush and the tameness of gardens. In this case there were dead flowers and a poem about Time and they came together…

  1. This photo-poem is really beautiful and I feel like it is an opening to an interesting story. Or maybe it is simply a wonderful piece of art opening up potential for a variety of stories. Bottom line, I find this really moving.

    1. You’re very kind Debra, thank you. It fascinates and pleases me to think about all of the signposts and doorways people discover in my art, passages to their own stories and emotions.

  2. A duplicated image John? Love the carefully written beautiful hand writing of the poem peaking through. It can be quite painful discovering that endings and beginnings are ONE!

    1. Yes Robert, so the duplicate is slightly different, darker. Somehow both appeared when I uploaded the image. I looked at them and decided to keep it as is.
      The poem peeking through the flowers, half lost to sight, is deliberate.
      Eliot always reminds me that it’s all a circle game…
