I love the interplay of the composition and beautiful poem. The triangle of yellow like a sunbeam nourishing the blossoming of the lilac, the way peace grows in the hearts of children, you tie it all together so well. Lovely to be introduced to your artwork!

"Lilac eyes, a splash of sunshine on the side," very sweet, but also sounds like a bar order! I loved this piece and offer congrats on your award! Innocence above all is to be protected, right? Love, Amy
