FRENZIED INSPIRATION. Tossing and turning in my bed, Ideas, ideas, churning in my head, Words, words, the Word! Concepts, creating, something I heard - So much to do, do, do! Inspiration has been triggered, Which I must be pursue. Grab the camera, pens and brushes; Ideas bouncing around in my head - Gotta hurry, hurry, hurry! Impossible to focus or concentrate, Brain waves - frenetic oscillations, This is too much to contemplate - Stamp, stamp my feet and shout - No, that won't do! Still hours to go, I want out - Out of this sleepless night! It's not insanity, all this mental activity - A flood of ideas - this is good! Another thought - maybe I could - Yes! Outta bed, outta bed - Am I becoming unglued? Toss and turn, toss and turn, A flick of the light switch - Check the time for the fourth time, 3 am, come on dawn, I'm eager to greet the morn To set in motion The ideas that night spawns. ~ Caroline Street.
Why this Art for this post?
I was looking for a painting to describe the outcome of the feelings that I described in the poem, and these three paintings came to mind. The word frenzy can also be applied to the art.
These paintings are a study of the faces of spectators watching their favourite team, i.e., soccer, tennis, rugby, etc. Something most of us have seen on television or experienced first hand.
I must mention that the art was painted in a frenzy as well. I have never done three paintings in such quick succession. It took a day to do these. I really enjoyed the frenzy! Time seemed to stand still!
