465 neighbors want What If on Muni in San Francisco.

Proposal
Poetry speaks often of the invisible, while art is able to paint the invisible- a feeling, a moment or a bond. This series will visually communicate feelings otherwise unseen. Rather than literally illustrating the poems, the art will highlight hidden moments within the words and emotions. Filtered through my form of abstraction the art alongside the poem will create a whole. The use of simple lines, colors and people will be able to spark conversation, inspire kindness or ignite self-reflection.

Artist Biography
Janet Rumsey is best known for her stimulating watercolor faces and anthropomorphic elements of humor. She uses paint and ink, all over the Bay Area to capture thoughts in journals or on ticket stubs. The rhythm of movement gives voices and colors to her creations.  Janet often writes whimsical phrases or uses words in unusual ways, like in one of her recent quotes. “Burping up the goodness of today.” After forming a partnership with a phrase, she then creates a digital image. The use of questioning, meditation and compassion keeps her art and visions expanding. Janet believes it is important to remind ourselves; we are not the only beings that think and feel.

I love this image and idea. The circles of color really tie this piece together nicely. I can almost see the characters thinking and speaking to one another through the colors.
