So, today’s May Flower Challenge activity has been doodling flowers in my art journal. This is in an old Victory annual – I gessoed & watercolour painted the pages ages ago but never got round to using them until now:
Originally I thought I would *just* doodle flowers, but a page without any words didn’t seem quite right – so I added a few flower related quotes and lines of poetry – from Georgia O’Keeffe, William Blake, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Christopher Marlowe. My favourite flower, and my favourite poem/quote is this one from Basho:
The temple bell stops.
But the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers.
I love that!
