You're Not Just A Pretty Face 2

You're Not Just A Pretty Face 2


An original painting by Ronei, from THE MEMORY COLLECTION, a  collection of six paintings cataloging irreplaceable memories with my Mother and Father - reflections of fading memories and a joyous connection.  Transcendent roses, vibrantly blossoming and simultaneously melting represent the vitality and fragility of life itself. I have dug a little deeper with the titles of these paintings, transcribing each title into full story format, transporting you with me on this journey.

Why the title? Stories form who we are. This is my story... “You’re not just a pretty face” is one of my Dad’s way of teasingly praising us. If you said something smart or accomplished something great, that’s how he’d respond. He had and still has the sharpest sarcasm. This trait was passed on to me and most proudly, I’ve passed it onto my daughter. I beam every time sharp wit flows out of her. We don’t have stocks, property homes or coin collections to pass down through our family- we have sarcasm - and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
