“When we moved here, I didn’t know that the shrubs near the front porch were the flowering kind, until one day they burst out in beautiful pink and white blossoms. The flowers graced the ground when they fell, leaving a carpet of petals. The floral shower right outside our door was such a nice surprise!
Sometimes in life we fear the unexpected- the call we don’t ever want to receive, the news we can’t bear- but there are times when the unexpected is a blessing. From the big surprises we didn’t see coming, to the small ones, an ordinary day can change in an instant over a cascade of flowers.”
“This pink flower bloomed in the gorgeous landscaping of the Georgia Southern Armstrong campus. The background is layered up; there’s a “hidden” background that was later painted over. The flower petals are raised/textured like clay, or icing on a cake. I go through a lot of paint this way, but it’s become my signature style to raise and sculpt parts of (most of) my paintings.”
