Once upon a time
Water flowed over
Large and small
Boulders now left
Bathing in the sun
Thirsting for a kiss
From mountain water
Now gone underground.

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder . . .
he [or she] needs the companionship of at least one adult
who can share it, rediscovering the joy, excitement, and
mystery of the world we live in.”

This is the second posting on Ken’s painting in Sabino Canyon, the first was last Friday (March 1, 2019). What a perfect time of year to be painting in Sabino Canyon, especially creek scenes.

“I find my inspiration in the created world but it is just a starting point on the journey of creating art. I am excited to find the inner essence of a place or a moment in time and then apply my own emotions. It is exciting to see the right shapes, colors and values come together. Each element in a painting (a shape with value and color) is like a note in music. In a pleasing musical composition, there are just the right number and type of notes in the right arrangement.” — Ken Requard

We walk
the lower canyon
after spring rains.
The creek
runs swiftly 
from
mountain snow pelt.

Cottonwoods
beginning to leaf,

wildflowers
cover the ground —

a new cycle of life.
