Visit to Donna Brown’s – Door County

In August, 1994, we visited the art studio of Donna Brown in Door County, Wisconsin. I wrote a brief reflection at that time on her working environment and the paintings hanging on the walls. We purchased one painting which hangs in our guest bathroom.

The cats looked like little rags
On the rocker near
Stretched out sound asleep
Yellow lab taking up
Rug by the work table
She sat there so peacefully
String trio competing
Rattling windows, bent hollyhocks
He sat painting – motionless
Hanging among the flowers
Golden hair peeking earlier
Under garage door saying, “Hi.”
Eating berries, cat held
Head by face full length
Down body hanging
Later “helping mom” at Hardi
