“Convergence,” by Anne Price Yates, Portland Branch (Oregon)
From the artist:
“My 12-by-12-inch acrylic, Convergence, waited years to be painted. Every spring, my front yard explodes with color. Roses, irises, tulips, johnny jump-ups, and rosemary create a delightful panorama in various hues, which shout for attention. These are lovely but were not my primary focus for Convergence. Instead, I have tried to express the delight I experience in one obscure spot of my yard.
The soft yellows and pale blues of these unnamed delicate flowers have fascinated me for all the years I have lived here. They do not flaunt brilliant colors but are simply charming.
I have attempted to capture the quiet, fragile, and lovely effect of this convergence. Tall iris leaves form a perfect backdrop for the delicate tiny blossoms surrounded by mosses and stones. It was indeed time for this lovely tranquil spot to be memorialized on canvas.”
