Love I Gave
By Elicia Ward
“Blissful & patient she was against shadows of change my love, my love, forever you remain, my innocent first love where all true learning became. Layers & layers of time has since past, I’m drenched in it, but your smile remains..”
Hidden in layers of this painting is the original letter my first boyfriend gave to me, (17 years ago), when I was 14 years old. I wanted to share the absolute blissful light that my first love gave to me. I thought how wonderful it would be for someone to have glowing on their wall. This was my first true love, the most innocent of all fearlessly loving with all my heart & he did the same.
