Flowers for Change - Watercolor Print
I created this 'Flowers for Change' bouquet in memory of George Floyd and too many others lost to racial intolerance and injustice. This painting is a way of using my art to show my support and participate in the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests and movement.
I chose each flower in this delicate and detailed watercolor bouquet according to their traditional floral meaning and tried to create a bouquet full of strength, significance and hope.
Black tulip - power, strength and supreme elegance
Dill - powerful against evil
Borage - directness, courage and sometimes seen as a remedy for a heavy heart
Black-eyed Susan - justice
Blue iris - faith and hope
Thyme - courage and strength
Forget-me-not - remembrance
Let's work for change together!
For the month of July, I'm donating the full amount of your purchase ($20) for each 'Flowers for Change' print sold, to the Black Solidarity Fund. This fund unites over 50 Black community organizations across Canada. Alternatively, if you want to support an organization that lifts up Black lives near where you live, let me know in a note when you order, and I'd be happy to donate your $20 to it.
In June, we raised US$140/CA$190 from print sales together! Thank you! On July 1, 2020, a donation for CA$95 each was made to the June charities I chose: Black Women in Motion in Toronto and Afrique au Féminin in Montreal. 💐♥
