I painted this girl for my cousin. She’s been going through a very stressful time in her life. She has always been so complimentary of my art and has a number of my girl paintings. When I first started doing art and showed it to her, she was so excited about what I had created. Her compliments and excitement gave me the confidence to keep moving forward with creating art. I am so grateful to her for that.
As I was finishing up the painting, I wasn’t sure what words I wanted to add. I keep small scraps of papers and other ephemera that have inspiring words, phrases and quotes stuck in a little flower frog on my art counter. I went over to thumb through those scraps and found a card that read “Everything will be ok”. I knew that was just what needed to go on the painting and I know that everything will work out for her and it will be ok.
