Santa Barbara Door and Reflections
Calla Lily – perfect simplicity. Love these so much that I painted two of these (this is a photo!) as a part of twelve 24 x 24 inch oils in the Celebrity Collection of Nature

Warm Heart: Was not sure if this half painted scene a few years ago communicated my purpose. Until I heard the story of Donnee, a 20-something. Her father Kim Clement (Kim Clement.org), and outstanding musician, we heard several times in South. California had two brain bleeds last year. Now he was for the third time in major surgery to fix the cause.
She found out the meaning in Hebrew for almond blossom is the same word as for Promise.
She decided to plant an almond tree in her father’s garden. I’m skipping much of the story – I felt so touched and asked hubby to look for this unfinished painting.
For me, it it reminded me on the story of Good Friday where all hope seemed lost when he died on a cross, but three days later the Messiah, the Promise, rose, so our mistakes were forgiven and we could have eternal life.
In the original painting only the top flowers were there. All the others were added. The other elements stayed, but changed the brush strokes here and there. The bird is a Gold Finch.
Spreading your wings to NO FEAR, freedom and destiny
