Language of Flowers...

Week 39 of Life Book 2013 is led by Dawn D. Sokol.  Dawn's theme is loss.  Her dear pet Lucy died a couple of months ago and she is grieving her loss.

The marigold is the focus of my artwork this week since it can represent affection, pain and grief.



I am reading "The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  (I highly recommend it.  A truly wonderful read!)

Beautiful - the orange and turquoise Shades, your drawings with the light and thin line, the feeling of longing in the art ... I like seeing the process as well!

So neat to see the layers that go into making such a creation!
