Ruth | 1943 comments My book of poetry, Fugitive Pigments, has just been published by FutureCycle Press. I’ve been publishing poems for almost 20 years now, but this is my first book. I’m really excited about it. It's a natural for this group as it combines my two worlds, poetry and the visual arts.

Actually, I was a visual artist long before I started writing poetry, so it was natural that I’d write about art. That’s what’s mostly in this book, along with some poems that resonate with the art poems. Fugitive pigments are those colors that change over time. Art and life, intertwined.

I hope you take a look at it. The cover art is one of my paintings. (Better yet, buy it.)

I’ll be glad to talk more about it.

I just took a look at your poetry book and I loved the poem that I could see on Amazon. I am ordering the book in just a few minutes. I hope that you have great success with it.

"Fugitive pigments are those colors that change over time. Art and life, intertwined." I like that a lot, Ruth. I wish you much success!

Ruth | 1943 comments People have asked about the painting that's on the cover of my book, Fugitive Pigments. It's one of mine, called Summer Promises. Oil on canvas, 24x36. One of my personal favorites, so I didn't sell it. We had to flip it to make it work for the book cover. Here's what it looks like in real life.


And here's the book cover.

Heather Incredible, Ruth! You've really got it!

Ruth | 1943 comments Thanks, heather. I've always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of beauty and danger. Hence the broken china and spilled water. Besides it gies me a chance to paint transparencies and reflections, which I love to do.

Ruth | 1943 comments My book, Fugitive Pigments, is now available in a Kindle edition. Thanks to editor Diane Kistner's preparation. I hear it's hard to get poetry formatted for Kindle. Hurray for Diane.

I missed the 'free' day, but I don't have a kindle or nook or anything, but I collect bound books. Any of those available?

Ruth | 1943 comments My book, Fugitive Pigments, is part of a special poetry display at San Francisco's West Portal Bookstore, sharing the stage with Joan Colby. You can either buy it there, or order it online from them.
