“Hydrangeas Spring Song,” 1976, by Alma Thomas


Alma Thomas was an abstract painter and educator who began painting professionally at age seventy-one, after retiring from teaching. She was inspired by nature, particularly as encountered during her childhood in the Deep South and created works with a focus “based on a juxtaposition and interaction of colors.”
