Silver the Silvermare ~ One of my first stainless steel sculptures
A big stash I have not
I have love to make art
Successful I am
To do what I want
Maybe money will find me
I’ll play my part
An artist I am
I’ll have or have not
~ Kevin A Moore
By loving your job, no matter what you do, you are an artist. When you pour positive energy into it, it shows and gives positive energy back. I find that admirable and I hope for people to see that in my work.

via Daily Prompt: Overworked Taking part in writing on “Daily Prompt: word of the day”
Me working on a sculpture in veneration of Ferdinand the bull
Doing what I love, being overworked, should not be possible. So interestingly, it’s not work, but the day to day that overwhelms. I am overworked doing laundry, cleaning my apartment, getting groceries, keeping my great little old truck running. My anxiety of being overworked comes from the time lost on creating another sculpture or piece of art knowing that I can only complete a finite number of works in this life. So I am overworked, not from my job, overworked with the little things life requires. ~ Kevin A Moore
via Daily Prompt: Aesthetic
As an artist I use the word aesthetic often. I try to create pieces that will fit aesthetically into peoples lives, add to their environment instead of taking it over. Aesthetic to me is composition as a whole. Not a table, but how the table sits within the flow of the room.
I designed and created Midnight Owl in 2016 for my own space, for my own aesthetic. Like art, I believe aesthetic to be in the eye of the beholder!! ~ Kevin A Moore
My blog will contain and include my thoughts, my art, my poetry, my beliefs, my gripes, and as my domain states, the stream of consciousness thinking that I need to free from my brain! I will also try to convey where these writings come from to give you a look into my mind. I really do hope for your comments, but being MY blog I am reserving the right to remove those that offend my moral sensibility.
Although I believe most of my writing will be positive in nature, subjects may be offensive to some and may contain inappropriate language for the young.
I’m adding one of my poems from last week on facebook to see how it looks in blog, I think I will slowly add my full collection of poems here to have them together in one place.
Sincerely, Kevin A Moore
I am Dragon
I am Dragon
My passion it flows
Containing the fire
Turned to dust
I am Dragon is an example of my stream of consciousness poetry, I was introducing the creation of an upcoming sculpture so I found a photo. (the photo is of a small dragon that my sister gifted me for I believe a Christmas more than a decade ago, I still have it) Then I let my emotions of the day flow. My emotions are usually inspired by an event or a person I’m admiring, or if the emotions are negative, someone I’m admiring; not so much. In the case of I am Dragon the poem was written in seconds, although I did go back and edit for appearance. I find most times the depth, intensity, and meaning of the poem can be found in those impulsive first words. Dragon is named as the author so that you can put yourself in his head and understand his emotions.
