This painting and my other milkweed themed art has a unique story: One of my first paintings I created when diving back into my art career after a break to focus on being a mother was Tropical Milkweed 1. The following year, I created this one. I made them to express my love for flowers and the purpose they have in this world. Not only do they bring beauty, which is a major theme I try to bring up in my work, but they nurture and feed and house the tiny creatures of this earth. This, a tropical milkweed, nourishes one of the most epic of insects: the Monarch butterfly. In this version, I allowed myself to abstract the flower a bit more, to be freer and more spontaneous with my brush strokes. I tried to communicate as much as possible with as few brush strokes as I could manage. Pushing myself, I added strategic brush strokes and colors that forced it out of it's environment a bit and included my interpretations of the plant - this is a continuation of a drawn out series of milkweed paintings made in the spring/summer of each year to document my artistic journey.
