The name pansy is derived from the French word pensée meaning "thought", and was so named because the flower resembles a human face; in August it nods forward as if deep in thought. Because of this the pansy has long been a symbol of Freethought.
I love to plant and have had many flower gardens over the years. Pansies, especially purple, have been planted in every one of them.
....inspiration to paint them with my favorite medium comes naturally.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed painting them.
