About this painting

As I was finished this painting, some redbirds came to my window.  They were looking at me.  I was looking at them.  It made me realize just how much time we spend standing outside, wondering what it’s like to be inside… and how we spend just as much time inside, wondering what it’s like outside.  It’s enough to drive us crazy.

Anyway, I really like the words to Micah Gilbert’s Beatlesque song, Get to You, especially these lyrics:

Outside, standing looking in,
It’s plain to see the shape you’re in,
These walls, tell a little tale,
Your fingerprints have left a trail
It’s clear and well defined,
Still we’re caught surprised.

As an added bonus, Scottish musician Fiona MacDonald, is on percussion and backing vocals. 

More about the painting Get To You

Get to You
by Micah Gilbert

Outside, standing looking in,
It’s plain to see the shape you’re in,
These walls, tell a little tale,
Your fingerprints have left a trail
It’s clear and well defined,
Still we’re caught surprised.

Sift the ashes,
Catch the starlight,
Clutch the moonlight, too
Hear the wind sing,
Feel it linger,
Trying to get to you,
Get to you.

Desire, standing in the wings,
Wears the hat of a million things,
This glass, hanging on the wall,
Reflects our fever calls
Howling in the night,
Reaching for the light. 

Sift the ashes,
Catch the starlight,
Clutch the moonlight, too
Hear the wind sing,
Feel it linger,
Trying to get to you,
Get to you.

Living in a giant’s shoes,
On the edge of a crater, too,
But this night is like a kiss,
Didn’t know it could be like this.

Sift the ashes,
Catch the starlight,
Clutch the moonlight, too
Hear the wind sing,
Feel it linger,
Trying to get to you,
Get to you.

Sift the ashes,
Catch the starlight,
Clutch the moonlight,
too Trying to get to you,
Hear the wind sing,
Feel it linger,
Trying to get to you,
Get to you.

About this painting

Won’t Turn Away
an original painting by Sarah Fox

This painting happened in between bouts of us going through the photographs of our honeymoon in Scotland.  It was, of course, a magical time. Hence, the inspiration:
 

If the center holds,
Then we will never fall,
There’s nothing here,
but the magic of it all.

Won’t Turn Away
by Micah Gilbert
How does the time fall away,
Where does it go,
It’s just like yesterday,
But different, I know

The changing atmosphere,
You feel it too,
I’m sure I saw it written
on the face of you.

And here, I’m by your side,
I know it when you sing,
You see it in my eyes,
I won’t turn away.

The center of gravity
is where you stand,
If I reach for you,
I’d find a hand.

If the center holds,
Then we will never fall,
There’s nothing here,
but the magic of it all.

And here, I’m by your side,
I know it when you sing,
You see it in my eyes,
I won’t turn away.

And here, I’m by your side,
I know it when you sing,
You see it in my eyes,
I won’t turn away.

And here, I’m by your side,
I know it when you sing,
You see it in my eyes,
You won’t turn away.
