Strength and Courage
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu
The Painting now has a 'plan' in place... a composition that was sketched out prior to beginning.
I did four sketches for my friend and this is the one she chose. There are two main flowers in the painting and you probably can identify the beginnings of the hydrangea.
I love sharing the transitions in a painting with you so you understand the time put into them. It is an incredible amount of love and work. The journey is amazing. It is the building of a relationship with this particular canvas and the composition. As an artist I must stay loose and ready to allow the painting to evolve in different ways.
Mark 10:9-6 '“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
