“Dew Drops.” © Amy Kindred. Watercolor/oil pastel on paper. 6.5 x 19 inches.
In the summer of 2009, the Rev. Amy Kindred set out to bring a dream into reality. She sent a request to arts organizations that work with the Indiana Arts Commission. “I asked writers to visit my website and view my work. Then, I invited them to create or find poetry that they’ve written that would go along with the works of art and submit the poems for possible publication.” The result is Twin Muses: Art and Poetry, a hardcover book of twenty-two of Kindred’s paintings and twenth-nine poems by twenty writers, published by Kindred in 2010. akindredart.com
This painting was paired with the poem “Words” by another Unitarian Universalist, Emily Kennedy.
