This is the garden: colours come and go,
 frail azures fluttering from night’s outer wing
strong
Silent greens silently lingering, 
absolute lights like baths of golden snow.

This is the garden: pursed lips do blow
 upon, cool flutes within wide glooms, and sing 
(of harps celestial to the quivering string), 
invisible faces hauntingly and slow.

This is the garden. Time shall surely reap 
and on Death’s blade lie many a flower curled, 
in other lands where other songs be sung;

Yet stand they here enraptured, as among
 the slow deep trees perpetual of sleep
some silver-fingered fountain steals the world
.
e.e. cummings

We have been getting bad storms off and on this summer and some days we get the clouds but no rain…last night it poured again.. this morning we woke up to grey skies and everything is sodden..
Echinacea bow their heads but weather the rain every time…this is the garden
…Toronto, Ontario, Canada…

Gouache and Setasilk on Arches HP Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
