Little Flames

It’s not what you gather, but what you scatter

that tells what kind of life you have lived.

– Helen Walton

This next Mini Vacations original, “Flammola (Pansy)”, has been made for a special person’s birthday, someone who’s scattered lots of encouragement and support my way. Pansies are called “flammola” in Italian, or “little flames”, and I didn’t know that until the painting was done. But how perfectly appropriate a flower to be the star of her piece! With each email or conversation about art, she has always ignited a little flame for me!
