The little girl in the painting is someone I know. I snapped her picture as we crossed the bridge. It is a rendition of the Greenville Liberty bridge, a pedestrian bridge which overlook the Reedy river fall.
I saw myself in the little girl and perhaps you will to. It's about one's own unique path and journey into higher consciousness...
Falls Cottage is located on Main Street, Greenville, a few steps from my studio. Early Spring the pink blooming tree is simply magical. It was the first large painting I completed after my husband Guy passed away in 2013. It recently went to live in Maryland with a lovely lady. I had a lot of fun figuring out this one. It taught me so much. For several days I lost myself in it and then we found each other.
This painting has connections to my early childhood dreams as well as Greenville scenery. From my studio I could see the bridge (outlined in light green) and the two crepe myrtles. Of course, I took a lot of liberties. I am very much drawn to the enchanted and dreamlike imageries.
