36"x36" Venetian plaster on canvas floral with an excerpt from the following poem embedded in the texture. (last stanza is included)

"Falling like purple shadows

Out of reach, out of time

thistles blue with yearning

Have pushed too much behind

Weighing in with trepidation

And reverence sublime,

Thorns of roses never ceased

Returning tendrils eager climb.

Cradled in bewilderment

Gorging themselves in bliss

With nature's sweet vernacular

The poets’ kindred kiss" ~ Kirsten Bowen
