ARTIST NOTES: The wild sweet peas are going crazy in my neighborhood this year. I have never seen them like this. I say it every day when I leave the house. It is nuts. They are in all the ditches, and sunny patches. Aside the road, along the highway, along hills and in sunny open spaces. They are climbing apple trees and parked cars.



Honestly their beauty makes me anxious. I know this won’t last long and they will die back. This magenta and white gift of spring is temporary. And so it is a little bit painful for me. I want to keep them alive. I want them here always. And that is not possible. So how do I deal with this uncomfortable loss? I paint. Painting the flowers makes it a little easier to say hello to them every morning and it will be easier to say goodbye when their season ends. I paint them over and over. I fill up with their beauty and let it go on the canvas.
