In this painting, the tiny violet wildflowers called Santa Lucia cover the slope of the Costa Rica Ashram like waves in a violet ocean. Initially, Supreme Master Ching Hai selected a small tree to be included in this picture. Feeling that this tree was too small for the composition She created the big bright red trees. Master said that it was not necessary to always stick to the actual colors as this could be too dull and monotonous. Take a closer look the clouds seem to be rolling in the sky! It is not easy to reproduce moving objects vividly so Master was most delighted after this painting was completed. It took Her many attempts before She successfully blended the color of the flowers. These flowers had not bloomed so beautifully and that only after Master came did they appear to be so much alive as if to welcome Her arrival.
