Daydreams, 18x24 Soft Pastel

This picture was drawn from a photo of my son taken last Spring in our neighbor's clover-covered front yard. The kids and I spent several evenings playing in the clover, making crowns, necklaces, bouquets...
I love the dreamy quality, the stillness, the peace of that moment...the way you can get lost in dreams and discover such beauty in the world. It inspires me toward a greater love, reminds me of a simple innocence, and urges me to enjoy life no matter what it holds.

  1. This reminds me of a portrait that Van Gogh did of Joseph Roulin. The swirls of the clover and the peace of the child at "work" draw me in. Thanks for the beauty you added to my day.
