Robin's Forget-Me-Not Painting
Robin is one of the contributing artists to the booth & you may remember her from the bell pull of her images on fabric. Today she surprised me with an original, glasses and all. LOL. Since we've not met in person, she created this from some pictures I sent her many moons ago.
I am so humbled and blessed by this kindness and honor. Thank you, Robin Monroe / RoMo.
Forget-Me-Not by Robin Monroe
_The flower symbolism associated with the forget-me-not is true love and memories. In 15th century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the flower would not be forgotten by their lovers. In a medieval legend, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted “Forget-me-not”. It is also told in pious legend that the Christ child was sitting on Mary’s lap one day and said that he wished that future generations could see them. He touched her eyes and then waved his hand over the ground and blue forget-me-nots appeared – ’Livingartsoriginal.com
