In this next series of art work by Paul Boecher, I’m focusing in on some of the details of one painting and how they all come together to form a completed painting. Paul will tell you that he never feels his paintings are finished. Many times he will return to one he hasn’t touched in years, always finding a new piece of the puzzle. The same is true in any of the arts as we search for story through creative channel.
Our world consists of puzzlements, of stories yet to unfold,
Each simple piece will fit somewhere, the complex are like pure gold,
Each facet has a shape and life, joyfully taking its place,
Joyous to be a part of things, dependent on time and space.
A puzzle, story, a painting, are ways we express ourselves,
But soon they become like useless things, collecting dust on our shelves,
The pieces that make the work whole collectively make it grand,
If we could join all of the pieces, imagine how strong we’d stand.
