This piece is inspired by an Amaryllis flower that recently grew at our house in London. During the long winter’s days, I am always looking for signs of life. I have always wanted to try forcing a flower bulb to grow and it seemed very foreign, a bit strange to me. Until this flower appeared. It came from a box from the grocery store in the produce aisle. My daughter was like - “Pick that one!” A lone bulb in a box that promised a flower if watered and kept near sunlight. My husband paid more attention to it than I did. It looked pretty bleak in the beginning - a tiny green shoot emerging from the big bulb. Then the daily reports started coming in - “Hey, look at that leaf... oooh, that looks like it will be a blossom, wow - it’s getting so tall.” Then one day it blossomed - a firework candy burst of beauty in the middle of grey still days.
This piece is part of the EMERGENCE COLLECTION - celebrating the beauty of life percolating under the surface, waiting to burst forward into the spring. A lesson in patience and grace and allowing Mother Nature to do her work.
I do my best to capture the true colors of this original, but please note that colors may appear differently on your screen.
