Girl With a Flower
A young girl contemplates what lies before her in life.
A purple flower in her hair signifying her youth and innocence.
A young woman runs towards her future an unknown life that is vibrant and looks full of promise.
A purple flower looks on, in the foreground of the painting.
The Green Shower
A young woman who has been sexually assaulted tries to feel clean again as she holds herself in a green shower.
She has the tattoo of the purple flower on her leg, a symbol left over from happier times.
A woman’s world has turned to grey as she isolates herself from the colours of the world outside. A purple flower is the only thing of colour in her life but she is oblivious to it and it is wilting.
She feels a sense of connection to the lone tree in the field. Perhaps somewhere inside it is stirring within her a sense of new hope.
