In an extraordinary year of gray isolation, I looked to the garden to recall the joy of color in bloom.
Beginning with red and proceeding around the color wheel, I pursued each complex color in its fullest expression.
My year-long drawing meditation is a reminder that despite pandemic or politics, Spring arrives on schedule, in living color.
