This was the first poem I noticed, even after trying others, I just kept coming back to this one. Each word of the piece is so striking and full of imagery. It reminds me of Oakwood Cemetery, which is a beautiful place with a lot of life growing among the headstones. I like to take walks there because itís one of the best places around to see the stars.

When I began the concept sketches, I knew that to capture the right colors and contrast I had to use oils. Night scenes can always be difficult, but I really worked at perfecting the light coming through the trees. My original idea was to have the words spilling from the stars, but I found that placing them at the base of the painting was the best balance between the words and the image.

White trilliums light
the dark forest floor glowing
ghostly like spilled stars
