Climbing, Lost

A poem by Lily Selthofner, November 2, 2021, Manhattan, NY.

An Optimistic, Nostalgic Tree by Lily Selthofner

‘Uphill battles should never be climbed –

alone.

find a perch, enjoy the view

nostalgic perceptions

wander towards the present 

where I may seek to take an easy step with you.’

I painted this piece while sitting in front of a pond.

An Optimistic, Nostalgic Tree

An Optimistic, Nostalgic Tree by Lily Selthofner. watercolor on canvas, 5″x7″

The piece reveals dualities: of evergreens and deciduous reds — youthful in death, floating away, or falling, awaiting rebirth. From near and far, the trees see and know each other.

A Forest

This is a loose watercolor painting, capturing a place that I would like to be idle in.
