poetry

my favorite poet? bob dylan..... probably meaning that i am really lacking classical english education (most likely due to going to high school in colorado in the late 70's, where they actually tried to engage us and teach us to think instead of memorize & regurge- which meant reading carlos castaneda but maybe not so much classic stuff, including poetry. not that one can't be engaged by classic literature but i wasn't at that point)

so, for the digital art challenge around poetry, natural that i would search dylan lyrics.... and here we are-


I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.
I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.

what is ever so cool about this is that i figured out the magic eraser, which took all of the white out of the hummingbird layer easily (woo hoo!) and that i figured out the text tool.

it's not a great piece of art, but i learned some things out and it's all good.
i made some art today! more to come!
also went to neurolux to hear my friend amber's husband's band go engine now. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=115099108
steve (good sport) went along. i still smell like cig smoke- contact high! first band needed to be mixed better & to write just one song w/o a long stoned guitar jam. i liked g-e-n, but they were a bit too neil young for steve (who is also fighting a cold).
more art tomorrow, really- besides painting a bathroom....
