Gauntlet, Left Hand Painting

Art, art brute, Left Hand Painting, Painting With My Left Hand
left handed painting of snails and slugs

Gauntlet, 2018 acrylic on paper 18″ x 24″

The morning gauntlet
a daily shoeless
bestowed upon
by parental tyranny

she never got through it
without killing
at least one gastropod

with little bare feet
tears delivered
like the morning paper
