The Dauntless and The Demure © 2015 Amy Hillenbrand
30 x 24 Oil on Canvas


What do you see when you look at this floral painting? I see two actors on a stage (they just happen to be flowers) who just finished their performance. The spotlight is on them and it is time to take their bows. The taller actor is very dauntless, bold and confident. He has no problem taking in all the adoration and applause. Now the smaller actress is somewhat shy and demure. She has a hard time taking in all the attention. See her head bowed; allowing her eyes to divert your glance. Notice her bent arms. Can’t you just read her body language? It’s as if she saying “oh stop, stop, this is way too much attention”
