Bursting with Joy

Bursting with Joy
5 x 4.5 ins.
watercolor, gouache — acid-free board
August, 2011

I've been sorting through my studio flat files—Spring Cleaning. What a joy to uncover all sorts of colorful artwork about which I forgot. 
I painted Bursting with Joy while sitting amidst the rows of cut-your-own flowers at Rosaly's Garden in Peterborough, New Hampshire. 

Like joy, the colors Burst.

DC No. 104: Proverb or Saying

Like a crumb before a little bird, 
I could not resist this drawing challenge.

Named after Emily Dickinson, I hold
her poetry like a sibling at my side.

This stirring—
 turmoil below
the eb and flow
a push and pull
will find its 
natural course
in time.
