Wishful Painting Wednesday - I Am Growing My Dreams

I am planning to introduce one of my new Wishful Paintings to you every Wednesday as long as I am able to keep it up, soooo... today I am so happy to get to show you the second painting in my new series called "I Am Growing My Dreams". This painting was being born years ago (as shown in my 2006 Gallery on my web site) when I was experimenting with trying to create abstracted flowers and leaves in my paintings, but I never knew they would come out in this way. The letters are seeds and they are growing up through the ground into beautiful dream flowers. I think my favorite part was drawing the veins of the leaves into the texture and drawing the roots coming up from the letter seeds. So fun!

I Am Growing My Dreams

I love the idea of how we can grow our dreams. Just like planting a garden, if you feed and nurture your plants, they will grow and make this world a more beautiful place. I believe that if we feed and nurture our dreams we can make our world a more beautiful place in our hearts and in our homes. The most important part to remember is that I am growing my dreams. It is entirely up to me to do this. I cannot count on anyone else to do it for me and it is not going to happen by magic. It will happen by feeding positive energy into my dreams. Now this painting is my reminder to keep'em growing!

The original is 8"x8" and the reproductions are 4"x4" and 6"x6" and for sale in my Etsy shop.
