I have a canvas of earth and a garden in my heart ready to unfold its bright swirling petals. I love how we have been infused with the seeds inside to create beauty, and the tools to make our visions bloom. This has been a season of petals and stamens and color for me. I breathe and sleep their tufted forms. And I watch them burst forth along my front path and up from my water color paper. The earth returns my love to me, and as always, there are surprises and delights even I could not imagine. A gift for my faith in tending a seed, and inspiration for another jewel toned painting.
