NIGHTBLOOMING CACTUS 5


The image below is the second card for box set 2.

*******

The inside matched with this is SIMPLE TRUTH AND ABSOLUTE REALITY.

*******

This is an affirmation given to me by Jon Farle. It is sort of his motto. At his suggestion, I use it in my work with chronically mentaly ill as a reality check for myself and our clients. In this complex, rapidly chnging world, it is important to know whether or not we are dealing with Simple Truth &Absolute Reality.

*******

I have paired this statement with a mandala design. Check it out on my Brightlights blog.
********
The image above was one of my first digital flower creations.
May be done as prints, cards, and bookmarks.

NIGHTBLOOMING CACTUS 3

This is the first of 4 Nightblooming Cactus flowers that will make up a second box set of notedards. The picture is paired with another inspirational statement.
*******
REFERENCE i19 & t12

PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS

This is the flower of a spineless prickly pear we have in our front yard. Since coming to Arizona, I have been amazed at the beauty of cactus flowers. They all have a waxiness to them that helps to hold in the moisture. The poem expresses my appreciation for these natural wonders.
*******
This can be done as prints although I wouldn't go larger than 11"x17". It can be done with or without the poem. It can also be purchased as a standard size card or notecard. It can have a blank inside, the poem given here, or some other saying of your choice.
*******
Special orders don't upset us.

CALIFORNIA POPPIES MANDALA


Here is an example of a more complex arrangement of the flowers. There is no limit to the number of compositions which can be done on this theme.
*******
Again, I am showing two versions of this one. The second features a quote by Beatrix Farrand:
"No life is well rounded without the subtle inspiration of beauty."
*******
Good for poster size prints.
