I love to paint.

Watching pigment move into water on paper,

the creamy ooze of oil,

slate blue against fiery orange red.  

I love to paint.


I love to draw.

Following the line of a thing

is like hugging it with a smile.

I love to draw.


I love

making, creating, recording, 

imagining, watching, waiting,




As simple as that.  Like sunshine.


Love, Ashley
