Creative beauty is all around us whether it comes in the form of paint, prose, music, culinary genius, or on a stage, and I love it all. I am often captivated by these various expressions of the soul, open and vulnerable. When I saw this piece appear on Face Book by a gifted artist, Lori Vafiades, I thought it was stunning. The painting and scripture reference resonate with me—may the spice from my garden flow out—I want to hang in my kitchen. She graciously agreed to let me share Blow Over My Garden with you for Feature Fridays.
I have known Lori since she served as our daughter’s art teacher years ago, so I have admired her work for some time. Recently, we purchased the children’s book she illustrated, Here I Am The One You Love, for our grandchildren and the imagery is glorious. If you click on the photo or on Great Company: Art of Lori Vafiades, you can browse other examples of Lori’s work as well. Enjoy!
