The following reflection is attached to the back of the painting on laminated card stock.
An English Ivy depicts a sense of free spiritedness as it drifts and spirals about. A sense of freedom and lightheartedness is felt as it happily cascades downward; twisting and turning without worry.
Children often exhibit this sense of complete freedom as they dance about in play. Their only concern is to enjoy the moment. Often as adults this sense of freedom becomes elusive as responsibilities take precedence. It is important to release ones worries and let a childlike spirit prevail. Allowing oneself a moment of pure freedom of thought and spirit- if only for a short while.
