I dreamed of a clematis vine
filled of many flowers and
many stems
intertwined upon a trellis
healthy it thrived
and it climbed…
I thought of the way
it clung gracefully
weaving through spaces
feelers exposed
blossoming buds
into flowers,
royal purple and velvet
yellow, sincerity
is its inner enthusiasm
its conscious innocence
tolerant and flexible
to spring rains..
Life support was its trellis
sturdy and hardy wood
anchored in soil
weathered it stood
all the tests of time,
seasons and climate
.. D.Rosenberg

A new painting from my Design Collection in Watercolour on Arches Not 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..

    Oh my gosh, I was just looking at my vine today and looking forward to seeing it bloom! This is lovely, such great composition, light and colors! A delightful spring image filled with hope!

  • Thank you so much Joanne…I was doing the same thing…I saw the Violets and the Forget me nots blooming and will be painting those too but the Clematis came first…
