Paintings always look better with a nice frame, right?

Fairytale painting

Leda and the Swan
Acrylic, 15 cm x 21 cm

A SUDDEN blow: the great wings beating still
Above the staggering girl, 
Her thighs caressed by the dark webs, 
Her nape caught in his bill,
He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.
How can those terrified vague fingers push
The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?
And how can body, laid in that white rush,
But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?
A shudder in the loins engenders there
The broken wall, the burning roof and tower
And Agamemnon dead.
Being so caught up,
So mastered by the brute blood of the air,
Did she put on his knowledge with his power
Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?

-William Butler Yeats

New abstract painting

Just godt home from my art class with this painting. My teacher loves it, but I don´t know.... It is plain boring. Any ideas to what I could do to make it more interesting?

"I AM A WILD WOMAN" (by Melissa Clary)

I am a wild woman

I know, inspite of myself
and in spite of what I've been told
that there's beauty in every age
no matter how old

I am a wild woman
I've learned what it means to be a life bearer
to bear children
to create art
to plant seeds of love

I am a wild woman
from the depths of the dirt underneath my fingernails
to the height of my very soul
I am one with the Earth
the winds from the four directions whisper through my skin

I am a wild woman

and the spirit of every wild woman coalesces in me
for we are each wild women
and we are all the spirit of the wild woman
I will follow the voice in my heart

I am a wild woman
I sing from my heart
I dance with the stars
I howl at the moon
I love uncontrollably

I am a wild woman
from the deepest, darkest, most sacred part of me
I am fearless
I cry in strength
I open my arms to the sky and welcome the rain

I am a wild woman
I nurture, love and protect
I stand, strongly, silently, sweetly for my brothers
I walk dutifully, prayerfully, joyfully upon the mother
and I will not be stopped

I am a wild woman.

Stuart Wilde A Remarkable Life. A tribute by James Wild

heaven's stars in motion
sunlight to earth devoted
ocean's wings will guide thee
darkness is gone behind me
forest light all a quiver
oscillates a fast shimmer
open door silver sword
loves' love to us afford
