"There is a curious paradox that no one can explain:
who understands the secrets of the reaping of the grain?
Who understands why spring is born out of winter's laboring pain,
or why we all must die a bit before we grow again?"
                — El Gallo speaks
                    at the the end of The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones

Lovely watercolor! It's different because there aren't many abstract watercolors around.

Gorgeous use of colors here. In my mind it appears to be a purple flower with yellow center and greenery around. :)

You should but it in your cards Suzanne!
And the quote too!

Thank you, Kristin! I've sort of been working toward abstraction for a few years. If you look at the Landscape into Art paintings, you'll see what I mean.

Hi Deanna. Thanks for leaving a comment. I was thinking fire but, to each their own! Glad you like the colors.

Hazel! Thanks! I think my days of notecards are behind me (you have a very limited edition). Originals are where it's at for me. XO
