A Famous French Writer Experienced

The words on this famous mother and child painting were inspired by a real situation that a famous French writer experienced. At times throughout her life, she would be haunted by the memory of the things that had happened to her and the people around her. She would see in her mind’s eye several unhappy memories that had taken place.

One day these images came to her in the form of flowers. She decided that she would like to have these flowers planted in the garden in her own home so that every day she would be reminded of the happiness she had in her past.

It is appropriate that it inspires people to look inward and find happiness, love, and beauty in their own lives. When you are creating art, it should be for yourself and no one else. You are the only person who can live with your art and have everlasting happiness because you created it. Therefore, when you look at paintings of your mother or your kids, do not forget that they are for you and not for someone else.
