Tina Steele Lindsey - Sonnet

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance ~ Bruce Barton
Viewing this painting at a distance I am reminded of the flower arrangement my dear husband presented me at the hospital. I was deeply touched by his concern when he walked in the room, and by his thoughtfulness in selecting the most beautiful blue irises I'd ever seen. The uplifting spirit they both brought was a godsend, a memory forever emblazoned in my heart and soul. 48X32 acrylic on canvas - 48X32 acrylic on canvas 


"Remember, its usually in the middle of the muck and mess that the conditions for rebirth are created." ~ Dan Miller
(orange painting in the background)
Regarding the painting in the background, I worked loose using a Sharpie to outline the figure and  then proceeded to paint the figure with a palette knife.  This sweet photo is of two of my favorite
people in the world who came out to view my work.
