Common Bounty - Carnation, Oil Pastel, 11x14, Original Sold
"Gratitude is my hallmark. Thanks for the small things, the common things. The things that are taken for granted, the things that are overlooked on a day to day basis. I represent the common everyday beauty of life. That which is easy and comfortable. I am well known as the simple, easy, inexpensive and uncomplicated flower. My grace and gift is in my commonness. I don't inspire great vaults of emotion or attract a lot of attention. But, I can be counted on to show a variety of pleasing colors and scents on a graceful long stem. My message is to give thanks and take joy in the little things."
