The land itself rose on fire with the sun
I could only hold my arms aloft
Scooping water round me
From my soul.

Watercolor Painting : Rowing With the Sun, circa 2021, Available
Rowing With the Sun – a rare (for me) combination of intuitive landscape coloring immersed around a carefully created figure. Even our then seven year old grandchild stood looking at it for awhile, finally saying, “You did this, Grandpa?” Higher praise I know not 😊
ps – my only non-#TexasFreeze post during our weather disaster here in Austin; photopoem seems almost prophetic now ❤️ Those posts can be seen at – https://felipeadanlerma.com/tag/texasfreeze/
