Inspired Art - Denver

John and I both donated work to Inspired Art this year.  The artist get to pick a poem and create a piece that related to the poem.  This is the one that I did.  It's the first piece of artwork I have finished since last summer.  It was nice to have a reason to get the ink back out and get my hands dirty.   The artwork will be auctioned of (via silent auction) at the Space Gallery off of SanteFe.  The proceeds benefit two local non-profits that promote creative expression and youth development in Denver's urban communities.  March 10th.

When I’m homeless
I’m sad.
There’s no one on my side.
No one to play with.
No one to talk with.
No one to play video games.
There’s nothing to do.
