I Found You_24"x24" canvas_flowers and acrylic paint
This painting is made from dried hydrangea flower petals. They were sorted into the shades of brown and applied to the canvas with medium. The images were created by paint and the colors of the petals. When this painting was made a little boy with autism was lost for several days in the woods. The parents didn't know if they would find him and if they did would he still be alive. We all lived their pain as the days went by without him. When I started this painting I was crushed by his inability to call for help when the search parties were close to him. His fear, hunger and pain grew in me as I painted and prayed for him and his family. I finished this on the day he was found. A person lost and then found is represented in this piece.
