Self Portrait

This is a full digital painting that took me several days of

work (see the making below). I wanted it to look surreal.

A Flower of the Mind


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


A flower of the mind

From inside to be

Where fortune you will find

To set each creation free

Holding it up tight

A head for its thought

And bringing it right

That marvels have taught


Seed of its purpose

From the first rise

Like a multifold rose

Reaching to new skies

Each step is a swift

Through tides of creative

From wings up to lift

Each newly approbative


The earth is its critic

In molding headstone

From stance analytic

To the purest of tone

That gave each the crude

In making brave art

Where sketch is its mood

A plan of fresh start
