The beautiful Crape Myrtle tree stands tall in the front yard ushering in peace and love into our home and sometimes, when the blooms are exceedingly beautiful, she would cut them and bring them inside to the table so we could be reminded of our good fortunes.
This painting was inspired by the Crape Myrtle trees in my own front yard. They created the most beautiful arrangement for my kitchen table. I had no idea what the crape myrtle flower represented until I decided to painting the bouquet. The flowers symbolize good fortune and usher in peace and love in the home.
Original oil painting on canvas with maple wood frame.
