In this Paper Bag (new painting)

Wow...I have been in an exceptionally creative mood lately. Poetry and paintings have just sort of been pouring out lately. Hope that's a good sign.

This is my new piece 'In this Paper Bag,' that was inspired by the song 'Paper Bag' by Anna Nalick. If you've listened to Episode 59 yet, you've heard the song. Ain't it awesome?

For those days when you really just want to hide from the world. This was inspired by all those days in high school when life would have been made better if I could have just hidden my face from the world. It's a light-hearted reflection on the quintessential crappy self-esteem day. Hopefully, it'll help to put a smile on your face.

Of course the original and prints are available on Etsy!

Love and Lyte,

Fire Lyte

  1. That is hilarious! It's really multi-layered too, because I can see the potential sadness in the figure. But there's humor too. And that makes it self-effacing and bearable. I think we've all felt like this before. What makes this compelling is that you've isolated the figure in the frame - which has the effect of drawing more attention to him or her when clearly, all this person wants is to disappear under the bag. A funny and touching irony.

  2. I love this. It has the sadness and the humor that comes with self-image issues that we've all faced at some point. Very touching.
