The Bright Side can often seem out of reach but it is all around you! Sometimes the trials of life can feel hard. Everyone suffers hardships and loss and it can be overwhelming, but there is a reason to smile every day. I walk my two dogs along the hill tops near my home and some days I stop and look around and see the perfection of the world. Just one beautiful flower with silken petals is so inspiring and motivated me to paint a hillside of flowers to bring sunshine into a plain day. Created in oil paint with thick palette knife strokes to create texture and depth, The Bright Side is happy and joyful and makes me smile. It is ready to hang.
