December 2008:

Over the past year I have been experimenting with oil paint instead of acrylics. With an additional move to a studio with much more light and a view of the skies, I am happily pursuing new directions....
            

 


                             Poet Norm Sibum
       oil on wood panel 20x20" (2018)

….Who’s euphoric? Who's idiot enough
For all that hoopla, that dog and pony
But a too low order of self-styled artist
For whom art is a party favour?
Sex, misery, filthy lucre
Are at the bottom of all thinking
And the rest is scheming. And light
With its long-nailed fingers claws
Across a sky
Bringing day—


excerpt from the poem     Near the Missisquoi (2012)

What do our souls seek journeying
