Spring Growth

8″ square panel

“I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.” -Steve Southerland

Flowers for the Soul

5″x7″ pastels on sanded paper

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.

Luther Burbank

I don’t know about more helpful, but I know fresh flowers in my home make me happier. I love the way this little study turned out.

Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.

Pink Blooms

24″x18″ pastel on sanded paper

Today I painted during a breast cancer luncheon at Baylor Hospital in Dallas with their arts and medicine program. A music therapist was also playing the harp during the lunch! It was such a beautiful day!

I included names in my underpainting of this painting. The names were collected from past and current patients of people that have impacted their treatment of breast cancer.

The Color of Dawn

10″x8″ pastel on sanded paper

“Pink is a beautiful color, because it is one of the colors that the sun makes at twilight and in the dawns.” –C. JoyBell C.

I have always loved when my art reminds someone of a story. Thanks to those who have opened their hearts and shared their breast cancer stories. I am honored to hear stories about mothers, sisters, friends, and God Children, favorite teachers, choir members, neighbors, Aunts, and Grandmothers.
