Slide WITHIN, SURELY oil painting on linen 2020

Oil on linen, 12 x 16"
Excerpt from the poem, "Within, Surely" by Soolin Cottle

The riches of a contemplation,
Are not sought by a pride
Of incomprehensibility.
For as a covetous foe, laden
With jewels of superficiality,
It has succumbed to a discrediting by nations,
Of what they cannot claim as their own.
