When you walk in our backyard right now you feel like swooning. The lilacs are in bloom, (and they're hard to grow in Los Angeles), a vine named abelia is in bloom and has taken over every wall with the most exquisite freesia like fragrance, but lighter. On top of that the citrus are all blooming-- it's orange blossom time.
Here's the picture that has been on Dinah's wall since she was little. It was a photo poster, a kind of diorama of weird knicknacks with intense color. I had it laminated years ago and it was hard to photograph. Linda Davick's posted her childhood wall picture, which certainly relates to her work, and so does Namowal's.
I don't think this has influenced Dinah at all. I don't see a horse in it anywhere.
