one of a kind

"One of a Kind"
Mixed media acrylic painting

One day I was taking photos of a friends land out in the country.  Their land is beautiful, full of different landscapes and textures.  
This was a project in which I would come out and take photos at the peak of  each season.
   It was the spring photo shoot and I was "out of my mind excited" 
to see a hillside full of beautiful white flowers.  
I was literally laying on the ground in the woods getting awesome macro shots.
That wonderful, in the moment of beauty- feeling came over me.  I loved it!
That is until I realized that my keys had fallen out of the my pocket.
Yep.  In the woods.   keys. gone. 
bummer.
They were gone.  So, I called a friend to rescue me and then continued taking photos.
There among those little white flowers on the hill was a gorgeous white flower standing tall.  
Different from all the rest. 
One of a kind.
Beautifully simple, but almost seemed out of place.  
But the beauty of this story is that out of that bummer moment came a beautiful photograph,
which I just recently painted and felt that "out of my mind excited" feeling once again.

I love art.
