miracle of a flower.....

Aren't flowers little miracles?   they are to me...

Here are my latest paintings.   Painting lilies is one of my favorite things!  And it is something I keep coming back to just for the love of them.

"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole world would change" - Buddha

This painting is a mixed-media acrylic 20"x20".  The clay pieces were pressed into these awesome antique wooden sari block prints I found at an antique store.  Then the layering of paint and was an evolution over the last year, but finally this weekend came into itself when I ran into the quote.   That is what made it complete.
"See the Miracle"

And this painting also came together last week.  It has been in the works since last December and is a gift in honor of  a dear friend's marriage.
"Love Blossoms"

Love it when a painting comes together.  
These days it doesn't happen very often, but when it does feels so good for the artist's soul.

Thank you for visiting the fiddlehead report!
