Garden Prayers: Spring

T.M. Givens

Garden Prayers: Spring is the second collection of drawings in this series from artist T.M. Givens. These pen-and-ink drawings—made primarily at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, California and at Katie and Clyde’s house in Cambria—are, as the artist says, “still part of the meditation I experience while looking at or experiencing or talking to or wondering about or thinking of these living places.”
