A Rooftop With Flowers
Over in the Garden, Hedgewitch introduced us to artist Joaquin Sorolla. I love how vivid and bright his work is! Thanks for sharing him with us~
To quote wikipedia, "Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (27 February 1863 – 10 August 1923) was a Valencian Spanish painter. Sorolla excelled in the painting of portraits, landscapes, and monumental works of social and historical themes. His most typical works are characterized by a dexterous representation of the people and landscape under the sunlight of his native land."
Girl with Flowers
Spring's green stars open like:
Pinatas, Ostrich feathers and
vintage botanical books
Her children's winged whispers of Dresden blue
floating like opal dust motes
towards funnels of daydream yellow
...light tickles me awake.
