In the Garden

Inspired by the painting The Great Gardener by German painter Emil Nolde,
I have created a drawing celebrating the abundance of late summer.

July, The month of loss, love and remembrance.

In loving memory of Jim Julin
Rockford artist and friend.

 Pencil drawing and words by Ramona Felse

A Giant fell today..

A toppling over without warning,
the great heart
 that beats no more
we are consumed by sadness,
by love and remembrance
of hickory sticks
and generosity
and giant chairs
with love

The cancer was found, and 4 or 5 days later he was gone.

Rest In Peace Jimmy
