For me, flowers represent life. I painted this piece about 1 year after my breast cancer treatment was finished, and I added a bit of inspiration.

Baby’s Booties

This was an image that popped into my head when our daughter called to say she was expecting a baby, which was the same day I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
