Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Torngats 30 - Arctic Harebells and Northern Goldenrod

Vibrant Colours in Torngat Flowers

Above the Treeline, Flowering Plants are Small and Sturdy...  
...and full of vibrant colours.   

Children play with Arctic Harebells, putting a purple blossom on their fingertips and pretending it is a thimble for play-sewing, or else that it is fancy-coloured fingernail polish. Children avoid Northern Goldenrod plants, however, calling them "bumble-bee flowers" because summer-time insects are so attracted to the dense clusters of yellow blossoms.
