The Bliss

I wanna read poetry to you until your ears are wet
Until they form a fresh spring that make your soul sweat

The passion of a hurricane you can taste on my lips

Torrents of words that caress the gentle curve of your hips

Winds of my breath…

Pantomime



Pantomime is a friend of mine that wakes me every morn

He whispers in my ear words I don't want to hear

Tries to convince me to curse the ideas that will be born

Pantomime has a quiet resign and when I am weak appears

He twists the dagger deep into my…

William Tolliver's Fieldworkers

 During the 1980’s, a boundless reverie of scenes from William Tolliver’s childhood found their way onto hundreds of canvases. Landscapes, fieldworkers, farmhands, and common, everyday working people; these are the subject matters that dominated his early works.

 Born and raised in the state of Mississippi, Tolliver spent much of his time as a young boy in the cotton fields, helping out his mother, grandmother, and all those who worked the fields alongside them. Collectors…

Intuition

This is the title of my latest work. It's based on that feeling intuition. Female intuition in particular. The eyes closed on the model shows how we can be blind to a situation. The open eyes see the reality of a situation. I used my female model because I'm always hearing about female intuition whereas we guys get a gut feeling. Plus women just have that mystique that after all these decades I feel as though I'm still on page one!

Hello..Welcome to Coriginal Art by Corinthia Bethune

Hello, My name is Corinthia Bethune. I am a self-taught Artist/Singer/Songwriter who lives in Portland OR. I was always interested in art as a child, and have always found ways to implement it into my life, even during times of crisis. I have always been a chubby, fluffy child and have always seen beauty in not being what society considers "normal", so most of my art centers around the "Reubenesque" female body type. Most of the we-moon in my family are/were "Big Boned We-Moon" so we always…
