Holding Onto Hope - Original 12x12 inch painting on deep cradled wood panel
Message from the Artist: A new original painting from the Thrive Collection.
The outward radiating of a daisy’s petals, each petal perfect in its own way. The number of petals circling the center and the way many daisy faces make up one plant, all smiling on the viewer, makes me feel abundance. When one petal turns or falls, there are many more aspects of her beauty that can’t be ignored. Together, all the parts, create the full experience.
The daisy symbolizes beauty and fertility. Childbirth, motherhood, and new beginnings. Also, innocence and purity, which is fitting when applied to a small clutch of babies.
This mother is Holding Onto Hope – the very definition of hope for the future: kind children.
The Thrive Collection. Flourishing despite circumstances, because Spring is a season of intoxicating hope and we are destined to THRIVE. We will push from the soil and reach toward the sky, as we ache for sun and breeze after being tucked away.
Soon is a time for becoming something new – a new version of ourselves. With stronger stalks and more fragrant blossoms. With more texture and layers of meaning that unfold without apology, as we seek to discover new directions.
From dark into light we will go, taking our children along with us. Proving that buds stagnated can eventually bloom. Our flowers may be a big dingy, a bit starved for light, but they are holding strong. Holding out hope. At our fleshy centers, our cores, we believe. We will let inflammation and pain slip away, heaviness will fall from our shoulders and joints.
If flowers are the enlightenment of plants (E. Tolle), then we can marvel at a fresh bloom and know that there is promise for us as well. Infinite promise.
