THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Violet flowers are an age-old symbol of love and dedication. When given as a gift, the violets explore the feelings of modesty and dignity, of respect that one feels in regards to another person. The violet flowers in the vase of the Violet Painting convey a sense of stability and faith as these flowers are not growing in the wild but instead are held in place and tended to with care by hand. This feeling is clearly felt to an extensive degree as conveyed by the color of the flowers being portrayed even in the background of the painting, symbolizing the extent of love and affection one holds for another person.
