5 x 5 watercolor on paper
© 2017 Sheila Delgado
The artist is a receptacle for emotions
that come from all over the place:
from the sky,
from the earth,
from a scrap of paper,
from a passing shape,
from a spider’s web.
Painting picture by picture,
I followed the impressions my eye took in at heightened moments.
I painted only memories,
adding nothing, no details that I did not see.
Hence the simplicity of the paintings, their emptiness.
