A fresh illustration style for spring

SpringStyleGirl180With spring emerging so does my desire to explore in the studio…finding  joy and freedom using India inks with loose brush strokes has invited a slightly new and very fresh style to my illustration.

A Spring Time Goddess Emerges…

Listen closely …. to the warmth whispering on the winds of a bleak winter month.  Lake ice turns deepest Prussian Blue, reflecting  no light in the last few days before becoming mercurial water. What has emerged from my paper and paints, but a woodland spring  goddess offering the hopefulness of Spring.
This piece was inspired by my daughter Matisse Merriam, who’s inner beauty and other knowledge is indeed my ‘crown of flowers’.

Bravo, Sara Goldfine and Matisse Merriam, you are power duo of beauty and brains and I adore being a part of your dream team!
