Oil on Linen, 52" x 78"
I wanted this painting to reflect the idea of a parent providing. However, I specifically painted it this way to create an image that (hopefully) tells the tale of courage and determination that parents must have when they’re raising an emotionally challenged child. They are unknown heros that would go to the lengths of the earth to help their child learn and grow. I can only imagine the strength they must have.
The flowers I chose to use are called are called Snowdrops. They are the Victorian Era flower that represents ‘Hope’. Rising from the snow, they are typically the first flower indicating spring is near. Ironically, in my painting, the snowdrops are blooming in the desert. Details included.
