SEEING COLOR IN THE GARDEN
LORENE EDWARDS FORKNER
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
As avid gardener all her life, in early 2018 Lorene began creating color studies of plants and other artifacts from nature. The practice has become a daily exercise in cultivating attention and mindfulness.
Color is one of nature’s most sophisticated tools engineered to capture the attention of all living creatures. Learn how to hone your perception, discover hidden hues, and cultivate an expansive view of the world around you. Color is powerful and delightful.
