The Little Flower


My talent as an artist is hidden in the mundane of everyday life; I decided to use this gift to paint the most insignificant, fragile and hidden person of all, the unborn child and show how beautiful it really is. The main inspiration for this image was the passage ‘The Little Flower’ by Saint Thérèse of Lisieux.

The Little Flower
The sun’s light, that plays on the cedar trees plays on each tiny flower as if it were the only one in existence; and in the same way our Lord takes a special interest in each soul as if there were no other like it. Everything conspires for the good of each individual soul, just as the march of the seasons is designed to make the most insignificant daisy unfold its petals on the day appointed for it.
