Back in Literature class, dissecting poetry was my thing.
Together with our lovely teacher Ms. Fermin, I loved how the class milked poems line by line. Extracting the very essence of Shakespeare, Emerson, and Thoreau's written pieces was sublime.
This is how I appreciate art today.
Every stroke, every colorway, every form makes me wonder what the artist wants to say.
It's also how I create my art. Every square inch is meaningful. ❤️🎨
May I introduce you to "Found Me". It's a delightful piece of pastel acrylics and gentle graphite. Its swirly strokes and loose pencil markings are a dance of line and color hoping to bring you to your happiest moments of self-discovery and new awakenings. ❤️☀

Of course, I milked this piece with a little poem. 🐄 🖋
Powder blue skies,
Floaty cotton clouds,
Blessed the most gorgeous day ever,
Turning on the pink light of hope within,
Finding my very best self
That moment you
Found me. 👓 ❤️
May you be wildly blessed,
