Why do I love painting flowers so much? They say that…
Art and love are the same thing; It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.
So somehow I think I see either what I am, or what I wish to be, in flowers. This one was glowing, even in the shade. That is a noble desire–to be able to glow, to gather all the light available and shine peace, joy and encouragement to the world in spite of dark times.
Magnolia blossoms are some of the oldest blossoms known. They are considered ‘primitive’ because of this. So they have been gathering light and glowing for the world since ancient ages. It’s a tale as old as time.
