A Poem for Spring
April in North Carolina is a profusion of natural splendor with azaleas, dogwoods and many other flowering trees bursting into bloom all within a few weeks of each other. With so many plants awakening after months of dormancy and now growing anew, it’s also a good time for contemplating fresh starts and different perspectives. It is in this vein that I composed the poem below which began with the fleeting remnants of a dream.
Annette Bartlett-Golden paints a wide range of subjects from landscapes to animals and makes abstract works with paper. Using vibrant colors, she imparts a sense of immediacy, vivacity and optimism to her paintings and paper collages.
