Heart Matters

When the pieces fall apart
Never lost of who you are
And the essence of your being

Circumstances come and go
Trials and tests and shattered hopes
Breathe relief when breaks the day
How you’ve come a great long way

Joy is what you’re here to say: It’s mine.
I fought every trickstone in my path.
Mastered the art of walking this land
To breathe the way I knew I should
With the beauty and love that rivers the in

And if one writes about despair,
I can say, I’ve been there
It has stumbled in my lab
For which I’m resourced to obtain
The cure, the cause and ways of handling

In the fields I see flowers
In the night I hear silence
They tune my body head to toe
A stage of creation starts to flow

Study of a Bighorn

Oil on Canvas 19.7 x 31.5 in / Óleo em Tela 50 x 80 cm

This was taken from a BBC documentary on Yellowstone. There's a part filming Bighorn Sheep and I found this animal to be very interesting. In this scene these are actually about to clash head on in a way that surprised me when I first saw it. I thought it could do a fine portrait and it's a feeling of lightness to have this one posted.

Esse quadro foi tirado de um documentário da BBC em Yellowstone. Tem uma parte filmando ovelhas Bighorn e eu achei este animal muito interesante. Nesta cena eles estão prestes a se cabeçear frente a frente de maneira que me surpreendeu a primeira vez que eu vi. Achei que poderia fazer um bom retrato e é uma sensação de leveza tê-lo postado.
