Flowers, Love, and Peace, by Donna L. Martin

From: Intemann Gallery at the Manitou Art Center

Mixed Media/Batik. 6” X 12” (Framed 7.5” X 13.5”) on cradle board. Original. In the heart of winter’s chill, where the world is veiled in mist, there lies a canvas of hope, painted with the promise of spring’s arrival. “Flowers, Love, and Peace” is an original mixed media/batik piece that transcends seasons, depicting the essence of renewal and the blossoming of love and peace. Against a backdrop of tranquil turquoise blues and lush spring greens, a symphony of delicate white flowers emerges, their petals unfurling as if awakening from a long slumber. Each bloom carries the whispers of a wish, echoing the longing to dwell within the very soul of spring. Amidst this ethereal tapestry, a solitary orange flower stands as a beacon of warmth and vitality, its vibrant hue piercing through the cool mist like a ray of sunshine. Its presence is a testament to the resilience of life, reminding us that even in the coldest of winters, the spirit of spring remains ever steadfast. In the foreground, scattered like scattered jewels, smaller orange flowers dance in joyful abandon, their presence adding a sense of whimsy and spontaneity to the scene. Each bloom is a tiny testament to the power of love and the potential for peace to bloom in even the most unexpected places. This piece invites you to embrace the beauty of the present moment and the infinite possibilities that lie ahead. “Flowers, Love, and Peace” comes to you framed in a simple black floater frame, ready to hang.
