Garden of Dreams
Oil on Canvas
20 x 20 inches
Mariel applied her dark yet feminine signature style in painting Garden of Dreams, oil on a 20 x 20-inch canvas. Occupying the very center of this piece is an image of relaxed bare soles of feet and yet what draws attention is the true focal point–a pink flower.
In a time of chaos, what does being grounded mean? “Being grounded means having a solid foundation of who you are and what your values are. That no matter how high you’ve flown and how bad the fall, you’d be whole and unscathed. Don't let success, money, or chaos change you. Stay humble, humane, and civilized. The flower represents your solid foundation. Keep it blooming.”
