About June Nash

I love drawing and painting, writing poetry, and carving wood. It relaxes me.  My art is a reflection of my life, interests and feelings.

I am inspired by learning new things, constantly trying to improve my knowledge and skills.  I love seeing subjects come alive out of a blank canvas, piece of paper, or stick of wood.

Why do I do it?  It is fun!

Art

I am self taught, to the degree any of us are self taught.  I have taken various classes through the years, watched videos, and read books.

Poetry

Writing poetry, started at twelve
After that, dared not delve
Compared myself to my peers
My confidence lagged. . . for years

Mine were trite, all concealing.
Theirs deep, too revealing.
Sensitive, fragile, I was then,
would not put my heart to pen.

Today tales I have a lot
Too old to care if out they got.
Living with flair, have full life.
Time to share internal strife.

  1. Awesome poem about poetry, encapsulated the emotions of it beautifully.
    It is also wonderful to see the marvelous self-portrait on this page too. That’s something I’m neither brave nor skilled enough to do yet…

    • Thank you! I was offered this award several months ago, but I was very busy and, even though I intended to accept it, time passed. I am honored that you feel me worthy of this award. I will accept, and do my best to carry it on.

    • Thanks! I used a program called Sketch Book Express on my Apple computer. It gives you various brushes to work with. I painted it using those brushes, controlling it with my touch pad.
      I’m glad you liked it!
