I stop with colored water here;

amongst the weeds is something dear.

Once I got kicked out of a private university on the very first day for listing my fiancé, now husband, on my emergency contact form. I was very upset at the time. My pastor said that it was their rose garden and they only wanted roses in it… and here I am, quite a brown-eyed susan. Today I’m thriving nicely, with relatively simple care instructions: a patch of unpaved ground, some sunshine every day, fresh air, possibly a few like-minded nature girls for companionship. A light sun shower now and then can also be refreshing.

This painting and its back story inspires the “Sunshine and Flowers” exhibition –
