About This Listing
This listing is for a luxurious fine art print featuring an original painting by Bryana Joy. Originally created in July 2021 for the thirty-first issue of the Letters From The Sea Tower, this piece illustrates W.S. Merwin's poem about doing beautiful things anyway in a world that sometimes seems irreparable. The artwork is printed on 340 gsm archival-quality watercolor paper measuring 8.5x11 inches (standard US letter size). Each print is signed and labelled by the artist. 

Please note: this listing is for a fine art print of Bryana's illustration for the poem. If you're looking to instead order the edition of the Letters From The Sea Tower that includes this painting along with a reflective essay, you can do that here.

Bryana Says
If you know me, you know I'm always ready to jump at a chance to talk about the poetry of the late great W.S. Merwin. Merwin's 1988 volume "The Rain in the Trees" has perhaps had a more enduring influence on my writing and my life than any other book of poetry. Click here to learn more about Merwin's life and work, and to donate to the arts and ecology conservancy located in the palm forest he planted before his death in 2019.
