The ruminations of an artist on art & quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Here Comes the Sun!

I started this painting in mid-winter and it languished until the time I wasn't sure why I didn't feel like finishing it. But now I see it is about the return of the sun---SPRING!---one of my favorite seasons.

painted with gouache, prisma colored pencils and ink....

this piece also honors all beings...and various areas of our Mother Earth...

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in Her heaven -
All's right with the world!
~Robert Browning

Wonderful! And since we had a sunny day in Boise (albeit cool & windy) seems very fitting - and hopeful for more.

Hi, Aurora! Lovely painting! Wish I could see it in person (remember those days in CA?). Hope all is going well for you. Loveya, Catherine
PS: We've got more than enough sunshine here in Texas to share with you . . .

Beautiful celebration of sunshine - wherever it is these days - and the Earth.
I love the quilt wall hanging, too. Great idea!
