Soothing Presence - (Circles of Wonder) - © Sue O'Kieffe 2008
source images - violets and petunias
In the language of flowers petunias mean "your presence soothes me" and violets say "I'll always be true". I was happy to spot violets in bloom the other day and used them as the inspiration for this mandala. I was excited to use a photograph of petunias I shot a couple of years ago as the backdrop of color and texture such as I've been exploring in collaboration with John.
I offer this color and light and texture and glow from my heart to yours on this sweetest of days. Forget the commercial hype and feel into your heart and tell someone you care about how you feel.
Happy Valentine's Day.
