Flower Paintings and A Poem of Rising Passion and Answered Prayer


With a couple of outdoor art shows coming up, I decided creating small paintings would be a good idea. There’s always room for a small piece of art to brighten up your home, workplace or cottage. These canvases are all Acrylic on Canvas, 6 x 6 inches, $50 each.

Brilliant colours, faces open to the sun, passion, the very essence of flowers reminding me of the love I have for my life partner and of a poem written as we drew closer to a life commitment to each other.

Step by cautious step

we draw closer.

to what?

We do not know.

Two fiery signs

crossing paths

igniting passion and desire.

When we met again I remembered

you – the teenage boy –

always quick with a joke and a dimpled smile.

What has happened in these few short weeks?

My life no longer a straight and predictable line.

Yes, I handed God a list

but never expected a response.

And now, here you are,

the answer to my prayer.

My best friend, lover, confidante.
