Flower Frenzy

Flower Frenzy

I started this painting like I start all my paintings.  I make a few layers of marks with several colors.  Then I start looking to find what appears to me in the painting.

Lately, all I’ve seen are flowers.  Flowers everywhere.

I think this is because I’m getting closer to going to Maui for two months.  Maui is filled with gorgeous colors and beautiful flowers.

When I first became ill, my life as I knew it ended.  I laid in bed for over 15 years with no diagnosis.  I did nothing except go to doctors when able.

When I finally got a diagnosis of lyme disease, I got treatment and some of my life returned.  Not a lot, but more than I had.

I believe that my constant faith in God (although there were some challenging times about that) and my ability to pick myself up and be positive and practice staying positive got me back to living.

My life is still very limited, but I’m extremely grateful I live only a five-hour flight from Maui.  I can do sitting on an airplane.  I collapse once I get there.  But, I’ll have plenty of time to recover from the flight this year.

Aloha, everyone!

    Fascinating paintings of otherworldly flowers and plants, but I can’t help thinking that your health might improve if you took fewer trips to Mars.

    Your flower pix really do look like Hawaii. Love the purple as a background. The flowers stand out great with it!

    Hi Kerry, I really like this one. There is a freshness and vitality to it that is very appealing.

      Hi Carole, I think this one works so well because of its dark background. Thanks.
