Love in flow: water colors on canvas.
Could be better but like the idea.

Queen Ravenhair: Ink on paper - Excerpt from ‘Notorious Pleasures’ by Elizabeth Hoyt. Originally, it comes from a folk tale ‘Queen Ravenhair’ , I think.

Inspired by Piet Mondrian’s style. Wanted to see how geometrical shapes and text would go together, as usual rough edges but am happy with the final result.

A Community of the Spirit” by Rumi - Present for a dear friend (http://prettyux.tumblr.com/), her favorite poem

There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Sit down in the circle.

Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd’s love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Don’t accept consolations.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.

You moan, “She left me.” “He left me.”
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.
