AN INVITATION - a poem in paint

20" X 20"

There are many memorial benches dotted along the riverbank in Stratford, some with beautiful dedications. I sat down on one of them. I thought of the many people that had sat here before me. A little drowsy from the warmth of the sun, I let my senses take over. It was a beautiful feeling. I wanted to express that feeling in a painting and knew I needed words to express it. The poem came easily.
