With 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.
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’.
