Dove of Peace Watercolor Painting

This lovely dove painting will be hung at a counseling office. A counselor contacted me about incorporating a quote to my painting, Dove of Peace. I accepted with excitement. I especially love the incorporation of words of wisdom by the Dalai Lama, “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” My heart jumps with joy every time I get the chance to bring peace and color to someones day. I’m so happy that this painting will be hung in a therapeutic setting so that many people can enjoy it. 🙂

Audrey Hepburn Painting

il_570xN.918473392_mveg.jpg

I seriously cannot stop painting Audrey Hepburn! Here is an expressionistic depiction of her character from her film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She was an amazing figure, not only because of her stunning beauty but also because of her generous heart. Her kindness led her to help impoverished children during her time as an ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund. As a result she was awarded several humanitarian awards.

The original painting can be found at this link: http://etsy.me/2f7p6xt
