Pretty in Pink, Acrylic on Linen Print
Limited Edition Fine Art Print (20 editions)
40X40cm (Hahnemühle Torchon Fine Art Paper)
Flowers, I believe, are one of God's precious gifts - little bursts of colour that can't help but cause us to smile. A reminder that there are still beautiful things in the world.
I have chosen a plain, raw linen background to highlight the flowers themselves as the focal point - and to complement the beautiful native Australian florals, giving the piece a rustic look. These native florals are so iconic to Australia - home, where the most beauty in life is found.
The beautiful protea captures the attention of all who see her. To me, she represents the binding love of God's intended plan for marriage, as the centrepiece of so many bridal bouquets. Pretty in pink, she represents the bride, in all her feminine beauty, giving herself with wholehearted joy to her husband. And the love of the husband for his bride, in that perfect moment on that first day, as he commits to love and protect her forever - a small shadow of the incomprehensible love and protection of our Heavenly Father, for all eternity.
