Just-Spring • 10"x10" • © 2010 Karen Lynn Ingalls
This little (10" x 10") landscape is a little more Fauve than much of my work. But the sense and idea of early spring demanded more color everywhere. I like the blue and purple trees.
The title comes from the beginning of an e.e. cummings poem, In Just-:
spring when the world is mud-
I added more color popping out, in the tree blossoms, in the grasses, in the shadows – but this feels to me very like that mud-lusciously verdant time of year. Thank you, mr. cummings.
