Art: I Go To This Window by Artist Kasey Thiele
I chose "i go to this window" by E.E. Cummings as my inspiration for this painting. The entire poem moves me:

i go to this window

just as day dissolves

when it is twilight (and

looking up in fear

i see the new moon

thinner than a hair)

making me feel

how myself has been coarse and dull

compared with you, silently who are

and cling

to my mind always

But now she sharpens and becomes crisper

until i smile with knowing

- and all about

herself

the sprouting largest final air

plunges

inward with hurled

downward thousands of enormous dreams.

To me, this poem represents lost love. I relate to the fragmented, yet heartfelt words contained in this poetry. My soul and heart have never quite felt the same after losing a precious loved one.

This painting depicts a woman looking out her window "catching" falling stars and allowing them to break. What once was beautiful, is no more. I added layer after layer of glaze to my acrylic paint to the stars and drops of "tears" falling from the words of E.E. Cummings.
