Gratitude: A pink rose painting

“Gratitude is the memory of the heart”

– J. B. Massieu, Letter to the Abbe Sicard

Pink roses are associated with gratitude among other feelings. Today I wanted to write about what I’m grateful to have in my life. I know life throws us daily challenges and everything seems so overwhelming at times that we overlook the small details. Here is my list of “Gratefulness” for today along which is also the title for this beautiful pink rose painting for the exhibit, enjoy!

Gratitude Pink Rose

1- Grateful to have a another day, I will treat it with respect and enjoyment!

2- That I can paint what I want, my way!

3- See my daughter’s beautiful face in the morning..

4- Make her a breakfast burrito that she loved and said “Thank you mom!”, that was music to my ears..

5- Share my vision, experience and learning curve of painting with you…

6- The peace and quite in the house…

7- Listened to a dear friend artist last night talk about her art…

I challenge you to add to the list by sharing what your grateful for by inviting friends, family and your readers to join the list. How long can we make this list is up to you!

    Roses are significant in that we are reminded by the array of colors blooming in seasons of rebirth, found in any caring garden. It’s also encouraging that roses will not discriminate in areas least viewed. Thank you Peggy for reminding us that in your eyes, we rejoice to see how beauty will come to light.

      Thank you Luis for sharing such thoughtful words! You’ve made me think more about not overlooking imperfections, we all have them…perhaps another post??
