Imagine what happens in your backyard just as you awaken.
This painting captures that liminal time between dark and light, when nighttime Invisible comers* fade. All that’s left are prints. Which “would hurry away if they could." Look carefully for the “invisible comers” before they again disappear.
Invisible Comers was crafted as part of a Poet Artist collaboration. Through the painting, I converse with the poet, creating a hopeful, optimistic attitude; displaying the vibrancy and aliveness of the moment of a new dawn.
I give reverence to the critters and trees inspiring the poet “strangers with unwashed feet and tongues.”
Many of these “strangers” visited me daily; one signed the painting long before I did. You can see the rabbit’s (intentionally) prominent signature in the lower left.
Inspiration for the painting was an early January morning outside my studio door on our rural Alma farm.
