They in Wandera
They in Wandera
Where they live is soft, the softest place that exists, with fields of fleece that don't itch anyone's feet. Where they live, the sunlight is like a pair of arms.  It wraps around them to reassure them they matter, as they still don't believe that, as they still don't recognize their inherent worth.  In their minds, they are orphans, brought together only by the misfortune of having been misplaced since birth.  
For years, they have lived where they live.  They have built houses over the fields of fleece.  They have developed routines, such as gazing out their windows each night when the sun begins to set.  Having a penchant for space, they have found joy in witnessing the moon rise and the sky's purples, reds, and yellows morph into a sheet of star-speckled black.  In their minds, space is representative of their souls.  In their minds, they are unknowable.
Some of us call them civilians, if only because they look like civilians,

Winged Muse
This is a pencil drawing for a poet-artist collab exhibition I'm taking part in.  It's in response to a lovely, surreal poem called "Lost in Dali Land."  The poem is posted below.  I'll add the poet's name once I know it - we're all anonymous to each other right now.

I really really want to color this piece so expect a colored version of this up sometime later this week!


"Lost in Dali Land"
by ___________

blue trees wept leaves
the end of spin was near
into the dark and hollowed sphere
pink rippled
casting evanescent crystals
amid the dimness
yet unconquered

a winged muse
perched above the waning tide
of other-worldly night
released
in breathless
tones
ancient song
pure as the iron bell that sounds
where silence reigns

stringed phrases
words
that promised
memory of the world
teased beyond my grasp
then faded

unfathomed
they perished
buried in thin air

They in Wandera

Where they live is soft, the softest place that exists, with fields of fleece that don't itch anyone's feet. Where they live, the sunlight is like a pair of arms.  It wraps around them to reassure them they matter, as they still don't believe that, as they still don't recognize their inherent worth.  In their minds, they are orphans, brought together only by the misfortune of having been misplaced since birth.  

For years, they have lived where they live.  They have built houses over the fields of fleece.  They have developed routines, such as gazing out their windows each night when the sun begins to set.  Having a penchant for space, they have found joy in witnessing the moon rise and the sky's purples, reds, and yellows morph into a sheet of star-speckled black.  In their minds, space is representative of their souls.  In their minds, they are unknowable.

Some of us call them civilians, if only because they look like civilians, but they aren't civilians in the way we are.  They don't live where we live.  Their lives are not ruled by gravity. We've wandered along the border that separates us from them.  We've seen their houses built over the fields of fleece and, also,  much to our disbelief, in the sky and clouds above.  We've seen them walking in mid-air.

In their minds, they are not free. They do not rise above gravity because they enjoy escaping the weight of their bodies.  Rather, they rise because, like balloons stripped of their anchors, they no longer have anything to hold onto.  Where they live, as soft as it is, is not theirs.  Where they're originally from has been overtaken, one of many lands fallen to corruption on our planet.  So they look to the stars.  

We see their unusual animals, the ones with horns and wings.  We see them fluttering like birds when they have forgotten their history.  Most often, however, we see them sitting in the air, completely still, like the stone heads in grave yards, like the trunks of trees.  We cannot reach them, but we don't even try to.  
They in Wandera
I tried doing some colored pencil drawings back in December but they turned out to be a no go.  I'm currently working on a couple new pencil drawings and should have at least one new one up by mid-March.  In the meantime, here's a little piece of writing I did over the summer last year just randomly and for fun.  It's related to my Glacialand series.  It's a description of the civilians who live in "Wandera," which is one of 10 regions that makes up Glacialand.

Mom (Child Portrait) III
Little 9 x 11.5 inch pencil drawing of my mom, which I worked on and off for about 2 months.  I've been having this craving to do traditional styled portraits lately.  =|

I have a colored illustration that should be done in about a week or so.  I'm not sure yet if it's ok to post, I've ran into a lot of obstacles with it, but if I find it's looking all right after I scan it I'll post it!  

Hope you all are having a happy holiday season!!

I'm gonna be starting some new colored pencil/pastel drawings in the near future :D Hopefully they work out and I am able to share them!  Until then, here's a little sketch I did a couple weeks back.

Portrait of David
This is a pencil drawing of my half-uncle, David Lloyd Olson, that I finally was able to finish last night after many months of working. It belongs to an ongoing series of pencil drawings depicting members in my family. To learn and see more you are welcome to visit the "Family Drawings" page at www.stephkunze.com.
