Manic Monday - shower

Mo's word for this Manic Monday is SHOWER.

Shower of Flowers
medium: acrylic on board
Nicola Slattery

“I like art that makes people feel better for having seen it. I like to think good and surprising things can happen and to share an optimistic outlook though painting." ~Nicola Slattery 2009

I chose to show you "Shower of Flowers" because when I was searching for something to post the peaceful expression on this woman's face caught my attention.

I thought you might like to see another work by this artist with the same theme:

Falling Roses
medium: acrylic on board
Price: £5750 image size approx: 97 x 91 cms

Her work makes me think of an update on and an improvement of folk art. There are life and quiet and beauty here all at once.

The first thing I thought of her expression was melancholy.
