al.pen.glow (a reddish glow often seen on the summits of mountains just before sunrise or just after sunset; a rosy glow that suffuses snow-covered mountain peaks at dawn or dusk on a clear day)

For my mural project,

I was given the word alpenglow

which made me think of

vampires, witches, midnight raves,

Sunrise and Sunset,

The death of the night, the birth of the day.

Valleys, lakes, living along the Hudson,

Sleepiness and dreaminess.

So, I made a mural that opens and folds like an accordion.

It shows a woman shaped like a mountain

Admiring her reflection.

sketches for carmile

carmile chamomile

black is my color,
i love it like none other.
a red pout
before i go out.
streaks in my hair
of gray and black,
gather it up
and tie it back.
i don't care for glasses on my face,
but my ferragamo shoes
i cannot replace.
on my scarf
i do love flowers.
my braid so long
princes can climb towers.
