Weed – figuratively smoke’n

Can’t get the pictures to post, NO MATTER WHAT I DO.  I give up.  You’ll have to click on the links below to see what I saw!
“They may be tiny yet they push through concrete. They are everywhere and yet unseen. But the more they get stepped on, the stronger they grow back. “

This is a series of paintings of weeds, created as a tribute to the resilience of all those beings who no one made room for, were not part of the plan, and yet keep coming back, pushing through and rising up, splitting a path for the rest of nature to follow. “
“I paint both invasive species and native wild plants. They have in common their inconspicuous way of trespassing enclosures, breaking them open, letting earth breathe. A single one may seem insignificant, but together they can break through concrete. In suffocated environments, these undesirables are the first to bring about the return of syntropy.” Mona Caron

 

One thought on “Weed – figuratively smoke’n

  1. Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder (and in our nomenclature). We “Flatlanders” call them weeds when they grow in our gardens, yards, and sidewalks. They’re considered WILD FLOWERS in the mountains.
