. . . Veins of violet hue;
Earth wants no beauty that may scorn
A likening to frail flowers;
Yea, to the stars, if they were born
For seasons and for hours.
William Wordsworth (1770-1850)
from The Russian Fugitive
First flowers in the garden.
Last of the Easter centerpieces.
Sixth day of the Octave of Easter.
What is a "Study in . . ."?
A visual record defined by a single element, such as color, texture, or type. An exercise left over from design school, it's a habit I've been trying to teach my children, to encourage them to pay attention to their present and not worry about their past or future (unlike their worry-wart mother who's better at lecturing than applying.) As of today, Thursdays are my designated "Study in. . . ." days. I hope you enjoy them.
