“Each Season brings a world of enjoyment and interest in the watching of its unfolding; its gradual harmonious development, its culminating graces, and just as one begins to tire of it, it passes away and a radical change comes with new witcheries and new glories in its train.” – Mark Twain
The three pieces I am exhibiting which are monotypes were inspired by the above quote made by Mark Twain. Each of my monotypes describes a season of the year unfolding.
My greatest source of inspiration is my belief in the sublimity of art much as Twain uses his words to describe the sublimity of nature. My playful imagination linked with my strong love of nature is drawn from a personal visual menagerie where landscapes, portraits, still life and dreamlike places come to life. One of my artworks describes the spirit of Spring. Two bouquets of daffodils have a playful presence in an indoor setting. The artwork depicting Summer presents a sunMlower amidst dancing colors and Mlowers in a garden. Finally, Autumn is a depicted as a still life setting by an open window with a plate of eggplants. – Joan Jacobson Zamore
