Allegory of Spring-Inspiration Avenue Challenge

 This is a portrait of Chloris, the Goddess of Flowers and the Three Graces.  (Charm, Beauty, and Creativity).  Which one do you most identify with?

 By the way, my work is now part of the Ontological Museum's Centennial Collection.

  13. Congratulations on your work being a part of the Museum. What an honor.

    Let's see. I have no charm, no beauty, and all my flowers are wild, so I guess I have to go with creativity. Although I believe you could call me LATE, because it has taken me so long to get here this week.
