The Sky’s Eye and Ours

skypoem_border

 

The sky’s face watches, exhausted; blinks.
Blessed evening parades a lullaby –
woollen lavender weights travel
magically suspended,
hot-blushing sunset casts a mural
against cold walls, whilst the city turns purple
and the air to breathe is plum.

How many have painted a sun?
with twisted wrist and loaded brush,
an idea of bright, hot, white.
Artists eyes strain above architecture, feet stuck in
northern courtyards of red brick and cobblestones,
learning that all suns are not the same,
don’t look the same,
but look like us.

 

Overdue for an update

Urban Leeds. Today’s offering. Gouache and pen

If you only read my WordPress, then you’ve been missing out recently. I’ve become a Twit @SukyWhettam, and an insta… person; Sukytyleri. I’ve also now got a facebook page! Suky Tyleri Art.

I vary where I post things because what I produce is so varied, so hit me up on those platforms, too. I would love to connect with you!

I’ve got a few things in the works at the moment. I’m about to mount and frame a commission, previews of which available on my facebook page and instagram. It’s a beautiful, twisty seaweed piece with lots of vibrant layered glazes.

Oh, go on then. Just a little bit.

It’s too large to get a scan at home, so I’ll have to get a proper one done.

Also, I’m considering making a few christmas card designs, which I need to decide on quickly if I want to get anywhere with it! Need a bit of brave for it, too. Let me know if you’d be interested in christmas cards or generic greetings cards in the future.

I’m in the middle of writing a post about art journaling, which is a big thing for me personally. Looking forward to publishing that on here. I also have to decide whether to share pages of my own journal to illustrate my points! #vulnerabilityontheinternet

Speaking of vulnerability, I’m writing poetry again! Medication for my depression seemed to put a cork in my writing brain but now I’m off them (and have been for a couple of months) it seems it’s coming back. I’m so relieved. I will post poetry on here soon.

So that’s my bitty update. Check out where I post pretty much daily, here, here, and here, I want to connect with more makers.

And I’ll see you soon, with more meaty stuff!
