This was painted for our challenge for the month of December on my MeWe art group called the: “New Watercolor Workshop”. The challenge was assigned by Admin Connie Kornell and she took the original photo reference of a Hawaii flower called Frangipani.

Definition of Opulent: "having great wealth, abundant, lavish - opulence".
Painted from a photo reference by Gladys Ning, thank you Gladys for sharing your lovely photo.
Upon learning what the WORD of God says about the word Opulence, this stood out to me: Yahweh IS deliverance, or is opulence. Another reference to the word led me to this scripture: "And He shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see." Deuteronomy 3:28.
As a child I began designing my own clothes while in 5th grade. Grandma let me use fabric from her stash and showed me how to use the treadle machine. My love for art and the creative began at that point, always having a current project of some kind. Painting has provided a unique creative outlet for me that I am thankful for, an exciting journey where there's always something new to learn.
