12"x 12"Empty Nest. Painted panel, lace, cigar box and collage on wood.
Inside the box is plain text;
In the dark I lamented
Where on earth did the baby go?
Summers fly in the blink of a cloudy eye,
she grew up and moved away.
I gave her a chair, a blanket, some kitchen ware
and told her she’d find more
chairs by the side of the road.
