Newly Commissioned Painting, "Plant Your Own Garden and Decorate Your Soul""
"Plant Your Own Garden and Decorate Your Own Soul"
16" x 20"
Acrylic and Mixed on Canvas
I worked on this painting for a Collector, who also happens to be a dear friend, to be given as a gift to her niece on her 5th birthday.
I thought of her the whole time and how much she is loved by her Aunt and wanted to convey that love as well as the wonderment of seeing the beauty of life through a child's eyes.
The best compliment I could have received is hearing how much the child enjoyed running her hands over the rich texture and told her mom in a whisper, "I really like it, Mama."
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them."
