This is one of the latest from my "little paintbox". Yes, I've been splashing the paint around again. My framer is getting ready to do her Spring and Summer window. I paint and she frames and displays...a great relationship.

African Violets always remind me of my Grandmother. I remember how she would start new plants from a single leaf. I found the whole process quite fascinating as a child. When the plants were mature and had blooms...she would carefully wrap the pot in colorful cloth scraps and present them to others as gifts.

She took such care of them...and of course had all these little secret potions. I never learned what she put in the water and certainly did not inherit her green thumb.

1 Corinthians 3:7
So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
1 Corinthians 3:6-8 (in Context)

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment about this little painting. Violets always make me think of my grandmother and my childhood. I am yet today fascinated by the colors of the green on the front and when you look at the underside there are all these wonderful reds and purples.

Very beautiful work. I also like the scripture along with it. Nice.
