Abstract painting with orange, red, and black
Painting by Louise Craven Hourrigan, Oil on Canvas

As a child, I didn’t know what to make of my mother’s wild brush strokes. She didn’t title this painting, so the subject is a mystery. Still, I loved to stare into the flaming colors, and, like many of her paintings, this one inspired a poem in my book, Secret Formulas & Techniques of the Masters (Brick Road Poetry Press, 2018).
