A Palette of Poems
Arts of Life is please to present our 5th collaborative poetry book featuring words and images by: Omar Abulsheikh, Maurice Aiston, Marcelo Anon, Chris Austin, Ariee, Guy Conners, Russell Copenharve, Cole Fox, Danny Frownfelter, Amanda Gantner, Phil Gazzolo, Ted Gram-Boarini, Ted Hamel, Nikki Heusman, Steve Harhaj, Hector Jones, Brian Kaplan, Alysha Kostelny, Aaron Kleeblatt, Dave Krueger, Ngamanga Massaquoi, Laura McManus, Carol Pyes, Brian Reed, Kelly Stone, Jack O’Sullivan, Dave Thompson, Bettina Valverde, Maria Vanik, and Chris Viau.
We, the Arts of Life Poetry Group, wrote the poems in this book together and each poem was inspired by one of our paintings or drawings.
We write poetry so we can have a voice, our writing voice.
Other times we use our painting voice. We express ourselves through our art. We use our creativity, our emotions and our sense of freedom and adventure to produce our art.
We hope you enjoy our fifth poetry book as much as we enjoyed writing it.
