Adorned with Forget-Me-Nots
ROSE DATOC DALL
The Young Women value of individual worth is stunningly displayed in Rose Datoc Dall’s painting Adorned with Forget-Me-Nots, a piece which Dall hopes sends the message that each one of us, particularly women, is of infinite worth.
“I think each young woman needs to be able to know that she is loved and valued,” Dall says. She adds that this goes for adult women as well. She hopes that every woman who sees her painting may understand that the Lord loves her individually and will never forget her.
Bekah Pence, the model depicted in this painting, is surrounded by the color red, which represents courage and that a virtuous woman’s value is far above the price of rubies. Her hair is lined with forget-me-not flowers, a nod to President Uchtdorf’s October 2011 address, “Forget Me Not.”
Dall hopes each woman can know of Heavenly Father’s love for her through this painting. “You just need to rely on the Savior and remember that the Lord loves you,” she says. “In all of our crazy, busy lives, the only one needful thing is having a good relationship with the Savior.”
