Brayden Nicholas Rowland was my inspiration.
While holding my new grandson, watching him wiggle around and stretch his little arms, scrunch up his face, then fall fast asleep in my arms without a care in the world, I was reminded again to enjoy the little things in life. It was pure pleasure to just sit and watch that little guy. I want to remember that no matter how hectic my life seems, there is always a few moments I can take to be grateful for my life and even take the time to "smell the flowers".
This little girl in my painting is doing just that. She's enjoying the day and smelling the flowers. She feels comforted enough to sit down on the soft grass. She's barefoot so she can feel the earth beneath her. The fence behind her symbolizes the division between our busy life and our peaceful moments.
My goal is to start taking the time to enjoy the little things in life, how about you?
