‘Thread of Words’ painting

200.00

I am a member of Bridge Street Studios (workspace/ gallery/ artist collective). In 2020 it was our 25th anniversary. We had a exhibition themed ‘Silver’ to celebrate and commissioned a local poet Barbara Smith to write us a poem for further inspiration. I painted this watercolour as an ornate weaving of symbols to convey the words of the beautiful poem below…

‘Silver’

for the artists at Bridge St, on their anniversary

The slow, silver heartbreak of another day,

Tarnished reflections in the grey.

Gossamer webs of autumn

spun across branches of our lives,

reflect motes that gather

urgent hints

at hidden things, entwining strings

which disappear in an unexpected gleaming,

revealing new silver dew drops,

steaming

as the sun reveals the tendrils

of morning — a new day.

By Barbara Smith
