When words don’t suffice


How do I love thee?

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything,” is not bad, but not good enough. “‘I love you up to the moon,’ said Little Nutbrown Hare,” is quite sweet, but not sweet enough.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning breathlessly expressed her love with a poem, “Smiles, tears, of all my life,” then lost count.

When you can’t find the words to express how you feel, when words are not good enough. Canadian artist Sharon Nowlan expresses our emotions and true feelings with mixed media: replica sea glass and stones, a few twigs, intricate line drawings that depict what we want to say. Inspired by the beautiful and rugged landscapes and seascapes of Nova Scotia.
