Mini Moods

If the inside of Ami Fagin’s head looks like the bright-hued watercolors she began painting last summer, we’d love to take a few trips on her train of thought. This series, called One Hundred and One Visual Haiku, started as a daily meditation. After about two months of painting, it all started to click into place, as stormy, spiky, soft, and serene morning moods became little worlds of color and shape, each entry just six inches square.
