The people I draw have blossomed through the mastery of their crafts. The type of flower in each portrait is carefully chosen to symbolize a characteristic or value of that particular person. The inclusion of daisies in the background represent purity and innocence found in Dolly's character. The Texas Indian Blanket represents resilience, strength, and the ability to thrive even in challenging environments similar to Willie's career.
