New Work

King Protea is an exotic Hawaiian plant. The blooms captivated me at first sight.

I had a little fun with art and photography by drawing a couple of these magnificent blooms and using the photo app to enhance the colors in photo two.

My ideas came from art and photos on Pinterest.

 

 

Summer Morning

Overgrown green, moving downward

Straying unconstrained,

By nature, rampant, running tangles.

 

                      Blazing color

 

Bursting forth, by both self and soul

Safely contained,

In overlooked whitewashed vessels.
