I started this piece about 2 years ago and just recently finished it. I was looking for an unusual flower to use. Afterwards, I sought the name of the flower and almost reconsidered ever submitting it.

I then researched where did the name come from. Ironically, it was named because it looked like 5 doves gathered together. The irony is doves are a symbol for peace.

This was created on cream pastel paper with Prismacolor water color pencils.

Lenora has been a Counselor/Family Worker for over 20 years. Currently, she has found have an inordinate amount of time working in the geriatric community. Using the time constructively, Lenora was crocheting with some of the ladies, as she use to with her mother who taught her the craft. In so doing, one of the ladies mentioned how she would have liked to have a portrait drawn. Lenora took on the task and was inspired to continue. The illustrations here are mostly inspired by her childhood.
