For this latest floral piece I’m borrowing a few lines from the movie , “City Slickers”:
“You remember when we were kids, and we were playing ball, and we hit the ball over the fence out-of-bounds, and we yelled, DO OVER?” “Yeah!” “Your life is a do over. You’ve got a clean slate.” Yet somewhere I also heard, “In life, we don’t get do-overs…”
Some time ago, I created a piece with a pansy as the subject. Several people invested in the print, as a poster and the sheets of postage stamps. I was once again, uplifted! After all, people buying my work is the ultimate motivator to create more!
“BUT”, I thought to myself, “I can do better!” I had to wait for Spring to arrive, and another trip to the Walmart Garden Center, (see previous post!) before I could have a go, at a “do-over”. This recent piece is the end result of my attempt at a “pansy do-over”!
Using that same analogy, I am deeply grateful to a select few who have given me the hope, the drive and the reality of a possible “do-over” in my own life. A friend recently wrote: “…there is a world out here that is ready for the ‘new’ you. I’m workin’ on it!
The “Do-Over” floral print is available as large as 53 x 40 on Canvas, and as small as a United States Postage Stamp! Stop by the gallery for a visit…
…and as always, thank you for listening…
