CONE FLOWERS ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

CONEFLOWERS original watercolor is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound rough paper.
With their hands raised
like sacred dancers,
moving to silent music

each like the arms of the dancers
swaying in unison
in time to the rhythm
the dance of creation
in the bright morning sun.
