Moriah of Juniper Blue Studio created this floral arrangement for me. Ive been painting with it through its changes this past week and am more and more beguiled each day. I don't know how to put the pleasure into words. Another beautiful experience that leaves me speechless: sometimes when I paint I listen to Robin Wall Kimmerer read from her book Braiding Sweetgrass.
This is a painting I've been thinking through for a year or so. It started with a family trip to Seven Arrows Herb Farm. finally got hatched in the past few weeks. Very small at 7"x5". It rightens (well I meant to write "brightens" but that works too) me up to see an idea materialize after a long gestation period, even in this tiny format.
