The inspiration for this painting was found in the Springtime gardens in my neighborhood. The title is inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's poem based on the impulses of our heart and our needs, just as the flowers burst open with the impulse of Spring. The edges are painted white and it is wired to hang.

Getting to Know Lisa

Based in California’s Central Valley, Lisa Manes-James is a retired art teacher whose work is inspired by her physical, sensory, and emotional connections to natural environments. Her non-objective paintings explore the essence of nature through color, organic shapes, and varied textures. Lisa works intuitively with brushes and tools, adding and removing paint according to her instincts. She paints in oil, a medium she finds to be sensuous and rich. For the artist, the experience of painting is a metaphor for the internal and external forces that shape the soul. Her ultimate intention is to cultivate an awareness of the relationship between the natural world and human emotions, experiences, and existence.
