Flower Study (vanitas) 1/24/11

Kym Hepworth, Emily Dickinson (yellow)

"Nature rarer uses yellow
Than another hue;
Saves she all of that for sunsets, -
Prodigal of blue,

Spending scarlet like a woman,
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly,
Like a lover's words."

- Emily Dickinson

Kym Hepworth, study of yellow in nature

Kym Hepworth, dance of the daffodil
