Let Them Blossom - Mixed Media On Canvas

The other day I did a tutorial on creating pretty little faces, so I thought I would share with you the piece I created using a few that I made.

It is titled "Let Them Blossom"  It's about watching and guiding our children as they grow.  You may have noticed my name is Fleurette F. Bloom well, the F in the middle stands for Flower.  Yes my parents were hippies and artists.

When I was a little girl my Father would always tell me, that I was their little flower and it was their job to help me grow.  He would say "a flower needs water, sunshine, tender loving care and protection, just like a child.  If you give them all those things then they will blossom into what they are meant to be."  So, this piece is a tribute to that sweet story my Dad would always tell me. (Thanks for being such a great Dad) :)

I added the time pieces in upper left hand corner to show, as time passes with the sun, so do the children grow.

I hope you enjoy this piece and that it inspires you to create something unique to you! :)
