"Kept Flowers": A Painting of Cultivating Meaningful Relationships

"Kept Flowers" is a beautiful painting that captures the essence of cultivating meaningful relationships in our lives. I created this artwork using the metaphor of picking weeds out of a garden txo symbolize the importance of keeping only the best things in our lives. The flowers in the painting represent the people in our lives who support us unconditionally, such as our true friends and chosen family.

Growing up, I believed that everyone could be friends. However, I eventually realized that not all friendships are meant to last, and not everyone who claims to be a friend will support us when we need them the most. While some might see this perspective as cold, I believe that true friends will meet me halfway and be there for me through thick and thin. "Kept Flowers" is dedicated to those people who love all the good and bad that runs through me.

The painting is bright and colorful, reflecting the positive energy of having a support unit in our lives. The flowers are depicted as strong and resilient, just like the people who stand by us in our darkest moments. The artwork also captures the essence of vulnerability and the importance of being there for one another without judgment. The flowers represent the love and care that we give to one another, regardless of our flaws or imperfections.

"Kept Flowers" is a one-of-a-kind artwork, created using acrylic paint on stretched canvas. The size of the painting is 40 x 30 cm, and there will be no prints distributed. This means that whoever purchases this artwork will be the only person in the world who owns it. The uniqueness of the painting emphasises the importance of cultivating meaningful relationships, as each relationship we have in our lives is one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable.

In conclusion, "Kept Flowers" is a beautiful representation of the importance of cultivating meaningful relationships in our lives and keeping the positive energy close to our hearts. It's a reminder to appreciate the people who support us, and to always strive to create a life filled with love and positivity. The painting is not only visually stunning but also holds a deeper message that resonates with everyone who values the importance of genuine relationships in their lives.
