Blooming Heart Cherry blossoms and Acacia Leaves18 x 24 oil on wood This commission piece was requested by Molly Dingledine, a jeweler from North Carolina. The painting has hidden text which states, "It's time to believe in what you know." Yes, it is all about following your heart. We need to listen and take action. Molly is about to embark on a journey to Uganda to teach the women and children her jewelry making skills. She will also help them sell their goods in the US in order to bring revenue and better quality of life to the people. The Acacia leaves are a native plant of Uganda and Molly created a jewelry line inspired by the plant. I love how connections are made and that my blooming heart series resonated with her.
