Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece is because I feel it is a flower holding steady in flourish of breezes carrying white cottonwood seeds or that late snow in the spring.
I created this piece in the spring of 2014. Nebraska can sometimes be rather bleak in winter and early spring. Looking forward to the bright colors ahead--I painted this piece and loved it.
My inspiration in creating this piece is survival. It is that part that shines through despite the circumstances--standing strong and proud. Letting the colors peek through.
Jaime is a full-time, professional artist who lives in Nebraska--between two large cities-- on an acreage with her husband, two young boys, and their fish, QuinnAgain. She studied fine art and design, and earned a bachelor of science degree in Design and a minor in Business. Jaime is very inspired by sunflowers and flowers in general. She specializes in slightly abstract sunflowers. Frequently, her work is created by a combination of on site visualizations, sometimes it is from a photo she has taken in her travels around the United States, and most often, it is straight from her memories and imagination. Her studio is in the daylight basement of her family's home, where she can gaze out at the natural grasses and various flowers on their acreage.
