THE CONVERGENCE -Painted Poetry & Painterly poetics; an ekphrastic notion part 2


"The Convergence/Painted Poetry & Painterly poetics; an ekphrastic notion part 2" is available online


With splendid contributions by Richard Cándida Smith (Berkeley), marvelous poetry by Norman Dubie, Dinah Berland, Juliën Holtrigter and many others. Noah Charney contributed an exceptional essay; all contributions are of great strength and are one of a kind. Last but not least, images of my recent paintings and some photo's I took of arrangements with my paintings and objects/antiques in my studio. ENJOY!
