Gratitude Blooming

These Gratitude Blooming drawings are based on 'warrior' flowers that have showed up for me over the last couple years. They have always felt like a reminder from nature to notice both the delicate beauty and the power of life -- the same beauty and power that can be found in each of us when we make the effort to really look and to trust ourselves.
