Love Conquers All….

Love conquers all is a saying I am guilty of using quite a bit. It says so much and has come out of my mouth in many tough interpersonal situations. If you would ask my girls what is Dad infamous for always saying, they would come back with “Take the high road… conquers all.” I firmly believe if you have love at the core of what you are doing or saying, it does ultimately conquer all obstacles. It came full circle to me with one of my daughters recently when we were having a discussion about a situation I was dealing with and out of her mouth came: “Take the high road, love conquers all! You used that expression over and over again with us girls in these types of situations and that would be my recommendation to you in this case”.

I took her advice in that particular situation and it got me to thinking about creating some art prints capturing the essence of that expression. I ended up using three of my art prints with that saying as an overlay.

The first one is a color photograph of a peaceful and serene pond in Butchart Gardens located just outside of Victoria, British Columbia.

“Love Conquers All Butchart Gardens Pond”

In the second one I used a soft watercolor of Hidden Lake located just outside of Whistler, British Columbia, again going for the peaceful and serene look.

“Love Conquers All Mountain Meadow Lake”

With the third one I wanted to use something that included people, especially multiple people or a crowd of people. Keeping with a “soft look”, I chose a watercolor I created of a crowd of people inspired by a scene I saw in Seattle, Washington ahead of a major sports event.

    Kirt, I love the backstory you related with this. It made the art prints even more charming. That first photo is so splendid! All the beautiful details. But I also like the uncluttered simplicity of the middle one. Beautiful work, my friend. Hugs on the wing!

      Thank you so much Teagan. It is gratifying when you learn as a parent that your children were actually listening to you all those years!! I appreciate you taking the time to stop back and for the feedback! Thank you!!

    I love when our kids teach us something we taught them! These are all wonderful, I like the Butchart Graden one the best. A favourite place of mine.

    These are great prints, Kirt. It helps, knowing the backstory. I had to laugh – when you hear your kids use your sayings back at you, it’s a mix pride and frustration. I like all of these. The picture brings back memories from when I’ve visited Vancouver, but the two watercolor prints are very nice.

    What a great series of artworks you have here. I think the saying is perfect and like it paired with each of these images. That was creative to process each image a bit differently. Nicely done.

    Lovely, Kirt. The middle one is so peaceful and serene to meditate on, but the third has wonderful energy and a message for humankind living in community. So many of today’s problems would vanish with an attitude of love. ❤

    Butchart Gardens is so lovely! We’re only a 2.5-hour drive away from it, but we haven’t been since before COVID. Hoping to go back again soon!

    And as usual, my love for colour comes through. Your bright watercolour print is my fave! 🙂

      Butchart Gardens is so beautiful!! We spent a couple days in Victoria a few years back and couldn’t leave without going there. Thanks for the feedback..I hear you on your love of bright watercolors!! Thanks for stopping by!!

    As always beautiful prints and the details you put into them!
    I have definitely heard that saying one time or two 😉 As frustrating as it was always hearing it, definitely brings truth and has really come into play in my life and recently! Showing love through actions and words leaves much more of beautiful impact on others than showing hate/anger through actions and words. And honestly takes less energy! Thanks for sharing these!!

      My pleasure and thanks for the feedback!! I’m glad you identify with the saying…if our hearts are focused on love (not always easy in some cases) it does prevail. Blessings!!

      I couldn’t agree more which was what inspired me to do that one. The others represent a peaceful and serene thought!! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the feedback!
