In this week’s photo challenge Lignum Draco inspires us to respond to the theme, “vivid”.

Usually I share photos of my gardens and flowers, but this time my photo is one of my daughter, Danielle’s, paintings.

I love the vivid colors in her painting: Sunset.

Danielle’s art is influenced by the Arizona desert, where sunsets paint the sky with brilliant shades of orange, red, purple and green and are the color of hope. She expresses herself through shapes, forms and vibrant colors; each stroke of paint radiating joy.

If you study the painting you will see different images: in this painting I see a bird, a flower, a sun and a turtle.

When Danielle begins to work on a painting she doesn’t know what the end result will be; all the designs flow from her imagination onto her canvas.

I am blessed to have Danielle as my daughter, several of her beautiful paintings grace the walls of our home. Her art makes me happy every time I look at it.

Danielle graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, in 2002.
