“This Gorgeous Earth” – Inspired by Jane Hirshfield’s Poem Skyscape Painting by Artist Bhavna Misra

Inspired by “Optimism” by Jane Hirshfield

More and more I have come to admire resilience.
Not the simple resistance of a pillow, whose foam
returns over and over to the same shape, but the sinuous
tenacity of a tree: finding the light newly blocked on one side,
it turns in another. A blind intelligence, true.
But out of such persistence arose turtles, rivers,
mitochondria, figs — all this resinous, unretractable earth.

The Artwork

Clouds floating in the sky, changing skyscape, the backwater, and the views of the San Francisco Bay.

The strokes of brush are confident, lush, and fluid in an attempt to capture the time of the day and expressive mood. The painting is not signed.

Status of Painting

It is available. Being on the easel, its wet. If you are interested, I can estimate the shipping date. (Updated Oct 5th, 2018)
