This painting of flowers is entitled, 'Prayer'. When do we use flowers? Flowers are used to offer blessings, bring greetings, and good wishes for many different occasions - weddings, graduation, birthdays, funerals, and prayer in a temple or church etc. Why do we associate flowers with prayer? Flowers are delicate, precious and fragrant creations of nature. Flowers uplift the spirit and touch us deeply, exactly the same way as prayer does.
"I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us and we change things." Mother Teresa
This, in a nutshell, is the essence of praying. Prayer evokes feelings of nobility, and goodness within us. It allows us to deal with difficult situations in a calm and collected manner.
When I look at flowers, they evoke a feeling of upliftment, calm and serene beauty. This is the inspiration behind this painting.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
