Coral In Bloom - Story Behind the Painting

Over 10 years ago, I had the picture in my mind of a flower in water as a result of a trip I had taken where I spent a lot of time by myself, traveling and thinking about things.  
God must have known I think in pictures, because He gave me a picture in my mind of a flower in water… 
I asked Him what it was about and He said that I am a flower.. when I am in His living water, I bloom, thriving and living as I was created to be.  
When I am not in His living water, I wither.  
I am designed to be connected to Him.  
And in that state, I am at my best, regardless of circumstances, regardless of anything or anyone else.  
As I thought about what He told me and how I needed that reminder / course correction, I thought it was represented in a lily on a lily pad in a river.  
So I decided to create a physical representation of it in the form of a glass mosaic.  
When I was thinking about what logo I wanted and what it would represent, I knew I wanted a blossom. 
I wanted to create a painting of a blooming flower, that represented me connected to Him. 
I chose coral, one of my favorite colors.  
So I painted it and you will see it in the near future in one of my logos…
To remind me and you that:
He designed us to be connected to His living water.
God gave us what we need to bloom.  
And when we are connected to Him, we bloom. 
So I introduce you to… Coral in Bloom...  
To remind us to be connected to Him.
And that we will bloom as a result.  
And that is what I want for You and Me.
