Edna St. Vincent Millay | Time does not bring relief / Non da' sollievo il tempo


Gustav Pope🎨 | Awakening spring, 1877

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!

I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side

Victor Bauer (American, 1969)



"My name is Victor Bauer and currently I live and work in New York. My work can be found in corporate and private collections in the US, Europe and Canada.
I consider myself a self taught artist. Painting comes as natural as walking to me. My father was a painter, and I grew up playing in his studio, drawing experimenting with colors.
My earlier works were mostly abstracts and during these years I developed my own style and technique using mostly just a palette knife".
