Flora, Summer 2013

by Jason Needham

After the drought of last summer and fall, the early spring snow and rain offered a welcome respite. The explosion of greenery that erupted overnight provided easy inspiration when I was looking for something hopeful. The imagery is inspired by a clump of weeds and trees along a fence row by my house. While not literal representations of specific plants, the organic forms, veering toward abstraction, offer a space where I can be playful and decorative – make some marks, have fun.

All the works are ball point pen on paper and the actual images measure 6.5 x 4.5 inches
