BLESSINGS (Age 11 - 2006)
This painting is about gratitude in giving and receiving blessings.
Giant petals represent the events and years from the pages of our life book. Dew drops represent live blessings. A young child represents life itself, and the light represents the Creator of life.
Some petals seem to receive fewer blessings than others, but only the whole blossom reveals the meaning of life.
When we feel sad, all we need to do is to count our blessings, no matter how few we notice, so we can feel grateful for what we have been given.
Sadness soon disappears and, in return, we get inspired to bless others.
