Hope, pen and marker on paper, 2017
This lovely graphic work is indicative of the summer season and the beautiful flora and vegetative growth around our city. I visit my Girl Scout troop's garden plot almost every morning and am always pleasantly surprised by the progress of the seedlings and plants that the girls have sown. To see a seed germinate and become a flower or a delicious edible is like witnessing a small miracle of nature. It gives me hope and perspective for the day ahead.
