NATURE & BOTANICAL ART JOURNAL – 2011 A long time ago I used to teach basket weaving & I will always have a soft spot in my heart for anything in a basket. When I look at this watercolor painting, I can immediately smell the oily rosemary and the musky lavender. Herbs have such staying power in the memory & so does music. Now I’m thinking of the song “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme” Until I started writing for this website, I didn’t realize how often a song will run in my head when I’m viewing certain things & am in a creative state of mind. It’s all connected for me, art, music, scent & memory.
