Our March / April 2023 front cover symbolizes growth and springtime. The colors and forms illustrate the life of a farmer – sowing seeds, watching things grow and living within the day and the season. Up close, the colors reflect the sunrise and the soil, but when you view it from a distance, the colors and image transform into an abstract flower design.
The back cover art is titled “Finding A Lover,” by local artist Carol Bouyoucos. This abstract collage is an explosion of florals and colors, immediately celebrating the season of spring as it arrives in the coming weeks. Bouyoucos’ work is also featured inside this issue as the illustration for our Connecting with the Land article on soil (page 30).
