Artist's Notes

A Joel Sattler observation describing his reaction to a painting.
A very insightful lesson.


Lyrics

THE EGG GIRL IN THE SNOW 

got a view of a girl on a road 
who walks with a basket of eggs 
I can't tell if she's coming or going 
arriving or walking away 

the sky's red like the blood of the moon 
the houses are covered with the snow 
there's no light in the windows of buildings 
and the winds are beginning to blow 

I can't see her face 
I can't tell her race 
can't guess if she's happy or sad 
I can't know if the story is ending 
if the ending is good or is bad 

in the corner's the name of the artist 
which I am unable to read 
you can't tell if it's evening or morning 
but the painting is all that you need 

I've stared at the young girl for hours 
seen thousands of tales in the scene 
I don't know if it really did happen 
or was it just somebody's dream? 

you don't know the route 
when you're in your youth 
you never can be absolute 
it seems you should know what you're doing 
but it's a long road to the truth 

got a view of a girl on a road 
who walks with a basket of eggs 
I can't tell if she's coming or going 
arriving or walking away
