Flourish by DestinyBlue Flourish by DestinyBlue

~Deserts can become forests, they just need nourishment to flourish~

💙

This drawing is personal as usual… being mentally unwell can feel like you’re in a desert, where joy, love and hope are the things you’re starving for. Getting better feels like water after drought, like a monsoon through places you thought would never feel water again. It’s relief. It’s beautiful.

💙

I’m on official Instagram Art Ambassador duties tomorrow – heading to IG’s London HQ! – Check out my IG to learn more about that! ^_^

💙
What's your favourite flower?

Peace, Love, and Watering Cans,

Blue xx

I hope for your garden to always bloom and smell of all kinds of wonderful flowers <3

And my favourite are forget-me-nots! They're so pretty and tiny and we have so much of them around my house every May. My Mom told me once that my late grandpa had brought the first ones to our garden as a gift to me, and since then they hold an even more special place in my heart ^^

Gorgeous work! So full of optimist!

I don't really know if I have a favorite one, but sunflowers, tulips and lavenders kind of rule!

I don't think I have any particular favourite flower, but there are a lot of nices ones out there, like sunflowers.
The desert analogy is new to me, though it makes it easy to get a sense of how such things must feel like.

The Star of Bethlehem is a beautiful flower, though I think I've inflated it's beauty with that of a character from Metal Gear Solid 3 who was linked to said flowers... still, they're quite nice. Lovely work as always Blue!

It's great to see your art reflecting not only your troubles, but also times when you're feeling good!
I'm so happy you're doing better! :heart:

Oh, and I don't know if it counts as a flower, but my favourite plant is Wisteria! I especially love when they're hanging over archways or at the side of a house :D

And like flowers, if not tended and supported, a person can slide back into the desolation. Your work is beautiful and moving. It tells a story of the heart that is too often suppressed. My favorite flower is the forget-me-not.
