Not Striving to Impress... Tulip Painting in Progress Laurie Pace

Painting in Progress 30 x 40   Oil on Canvas.


“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.” ― Marianne Williamson
Well, I wiped off the tulips that were open face on and chose to lean to the thought of a garden of tulips and not just three singled out blooms.  The light is terrible on the photo, but I am content with this direction and feel more confident that I did with the first composition.
Lessons in life... stay open for change. Change is usually not better or worse, it is change and how you adapt to it shows better or worse.  Something was not balanced for me on the first layout and this one gives me direction and purpose. Look for that as things begin to shift and change around you.
“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you." Psalm 39:7
