For this series, I wanted the paintings on raw canvas to feel as light and loose as my watercolor paintings.The raw canvas allowed me to work more freely and achieved that same feeling as the watercolor.
This series is inspired by 1 Corinthians 3:7.
“So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.”
This series was a reminder for me that God is in control of all things. The places where He is put in the center of—our lives, our marriages, our friends, our work, our everything—is where beautiful things bloom and flourish. I hope these wild flowers can be a symbol of God’s presence in the homes they occupy.
This series is dedicated to my sweet husband Zach who always stops to pick the wild flowers for me. Having our daughter, Andi has changed our world forever and brought new challenges to our relationship, but I’m forever thankful for a husband who loves me as Christ loves the church.
