I wanted to paint something to express all of the things that go on in our hearts. The flowers represent an emotion.
Joy = Crepe Myrtle,
Love = Red Carnation,
Desire = Dandelion,
Hope = Star of Bethlehem Flower,
Fidelity = Ivy,
Daisy = sadness,
the Anemone to represent, being forlorn or being forsaken
Photos of this really do not do it justice. The background is deep and varied.
Ink wash on Bristol paper.
Also available as a fine art print.
