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’.
