Love your Name Chrysanthemums

Pink and Purple Watercolor Blooms

I recently read Chrysanthemum. I had to paint Chrysanthemums. The story is about girl who loves her name until she gets made fun of at school. With the help of her music teacher who is also named a flower, Chrysanthemum learns to always love her name.

I have yet to write the words but I will write them in between the blooms. They are

Love your name.

Love you.

Never seek permission.

I love painting flowers and most importantly being inspired like this. Some may say I’m weird but that’s ok because in the words of Dolly Parton, find out who you are and do it on purpose.
