Creative Spotlight: Enkindled Spring

16×20 inch acrylic on canvas “Enkindled Spring”

Inspired by one of my favorite poems by D.H. Lawrence, this abstract drip-style painting holds a textured vibrancy, evoking new life energy wherever it is placed.

Specifics: 16″x20″ (40.64 cm x 50.8 cm) acrylic on stretched canvas.

Extra special stuff: Handwritten description comes with the painting, as well as an option to personalize the piece.

And and and…the poem is written on the back of the canvas.

“The Enkindled Spring”by D.H. Lawrence

This spring as it comes bursts up in bonfires green,
Wild puffing of emerald trees, and flame-filled bushes,
Thorn-blossom lifting in wreaths of smoke between
Where the wood fumes up and the watery, flickering rushes.

I am amazed at this spring, this conflagration
Of green fires lit on the soil of the earth, this blaze
Of growing, and sparks that puff in wild gyration,
Faces of people streaming across my gaze.

And I, what fountain of fire am I among
This leaping combustion of spring? My spirit is tossed
About like a shadow buffeted in the throng
Of flames, a shadow that’s gone astray, and is lost.
