September 9 - September 20, 2010

"In the delicious night,
In privacy, where no one saw me,
Nor did I see one thing,
I had no light or guide
But the fire that burned inside my chest.

That fire showed me
The way more clearly than the blaze of the moon
To where, waiting for me,
Was the One I knew so well.
In that place where no one ever is."

-Excerpt from, The Dark Night, by St. John of the Cross

"For the past 2 years I have been working on a series of paintings inspired by great poetry. These paintings honor the poetry of Sir Thomas Wyatt, William Butler Yeats, Pablo Neruda, Mary Oliver, St. John of the Cross, Robert Frost and D.H. Lawrence."
