a book of flower paintings by Kevin Woodson and flower poems in English and Spanish by Juan Pablo Gutierrez
The Language of the Flowers is a luscious full-color 74-page floral tribute of images and verse. Together, the paintings and the poems tell the story of the immediate personal and ephemeral beauty of flowers, while subtly narrating an ancient tale of love, magic, and the inseparable bond we all have to the Language of the Flowers.
This book faithfully reproduces over 50 of Kevin's watercolor flowers, all painted en plein air, in the Gardens at Lake Merritt, between January and May 2011. The poetry and art speak to the magic of each flower, and explore the promises and secrets of Spring.
