Sprout



6x6 inches acrylic/graphite/ink on muesum board

A small idea sprouts where there was nothing but rock.
Green and small it grows with speed.
Nurtured by only the seed of an idea.
Slowly it unfurls itself to the world.

Beautiful. I love the color...without reading your poem, I associated the 'rocks' with a human figure. :)

This is so soft and delicate and new looking. It makes me think of spring. I love your poem as well...new ideas are like small personal springtimes, aren't they? Lovely:>

The first thought that comes to mind is that it's a bundled up old woman, and something is springing from her back. Cool job!
