"Yellow Children"

5 layer reduction using 2 different blocks
4" x 4"(image) 5" x 5" (paper)
Oil-based inks on Kozo paper
Edition of 4
Available for sale here.

A girl with many hearts, her face
The color of sunshine,
Ducklings, and daisies
Smiles for the camera, while
Her baby brother,
Equally yellow, strains
To peek into the frame.
(His heart hovers over his head.
He'll soon catch up to it.)
They are up front, in your face
Ready for action, yet
Gazing further on.
They are both here and
Somewhere else (somewhere new?)
And their presence here is
So bright and yellow, as if to say
Clear the intersection,
It's time to slooow dooown.
