Bestowers of Wisdom
24x48x1.5" Oil on Canvas
Besides the common theme of purple being a symbol for royalty and wisdom; purple irises also symbolize respect and honor – whether for others or even yourself. This painting is named “Bestowers of Wisdom” as a way to pay tribute to and honor three mentors I have had on my artistic path. One ignited my creative mind, one slightly confused but secretly pushed me and the third took me under their wing when I had lost my way. They bestowed their wisdom onto me and others to allow the beauty of art into the world.
