Art: Space for Dreams by Artist Patricia  Lee Christensen
'Space for Dreams' is a portrait of a young girl, lost in the beauty of the purple flowers in the sun - perhaps having a few daydreams of future possibilities.  The primary character of 'The Color Purple', Celie has a younger sister, Nettie, and this portrait could easily fit as an illustration of her character as a child ...

I found this quote years after painting and naming this painting:

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
 ~ Harriet Tubman

This is a top quality giclee print of the original award winning painting and can be found in two sizes HERE at my ETSY store. I met this young girl on a visit to Barbados and I was sketching a quick cartoon portrait of her. As she was watching me draw, my husband took our picture and I had to paint her lovely profile. The giclee print looks stunningly close to the original, which hangs in my home.
