Spring revolves in swirling spheres
returns all wet and spring sprung
and long grassy arms reaching upward
receiving without censoring
the rain or hail or sunshine or moonbeams
of the perigee in this equinox
when all creatures stand poised
with one foot in day
the other equally in night
swaying to the rhythms of tidal waves and quakes
and faraway (but not so far) revolutions
spring revolves in swirling spheres.
I spent the morning in consultation with my husband about how to organize and improve the use of space in my jam packed studio. Spring cleaning fever on this first day of spring perhaps? And powered up by a full moon in perigee, so close and yet invisible to us this past storm tossed night.
Yesterday while there was a steady downpour outside with the creek next to my studio swelling and the hillside above spouting new waterfalls through abandoned gopher tunnels, we explored nature shapes in image transfers added to our abstract paintings.
Here are some of the student pieces. Using gel medium we transfered both ink jet and toner/laser prints.
