One-Liner Wednesday: Nurture Love


The hair salon where I got my hair trimmed (back in the old days) found their windows broken in late May or early June after a night of protests following the murder of George Floyd. The business reopened quickly, with their “hurricane boards” in place, trying to make up for being closed for so long due to COVID.

After a couple weeks of driving by and seeing the plain plywood, I remembered that I had a lot of light blue paint leftover from renovations and asked if I could paint an angel of the boards. Apparently the building’s insurance would not cover the windows, and the business owners had applied for assistance but had no idea when the glass would be replaced, so they agreed.

The wood grain inspired the “Angel with the Heart Hairdo” who later inspired the words:

Nurture the blossoms of love wherever you find them.

Let them become you.

    • Thank you so much! Yes, you can certainly share and reference my work. I’ve been wanting to share more of my art work and have been responding more to the nudges to paint and share, especially the angels. My mother had a special interest in angels and collected angel figurines which I inherited. I am honored that it gives you faith! You’ll find more of my angels here:
