Artist's Description

This is a mixed media work created with watercolor pencils (Raffine) applied over a digital photo print on drawing paper, modified with washes using Aquastroke water brushes, and then re-applying texture with the watercolor pencils. I like their rich colors and pigment lay-down even when not softened with water.

Basket

Remembering the seeds
planted with so much hope
while snow still lingered
in shadows around lakes
on top of the mesa,
we gather the last sweet
ears of corn, and acorn
squash, a firm red onion,
and a couple of ostentatious
peppers into a basket
for the table. The field
is dull with withered vines
and, this afternoon,
the boys will start chopping
aspen logs for the fireplace.
There’s time to rest
now, as the sun busies
itself elsewhere, but it’s
hard to cut these last
offerings of summer
into a dish for dinner.
If only they would
keep a little longer.
