“The adult coloring book KINDNESS contains 25 coloring images, depicting my first collection of women of flowers, full of details for great fun and satisfaction. Every page of this book is rich in detail and always depicts a woman and flowers.
In this set of drawings I wanted to express my concept of beauty: The women I paint in this collection are still amazed at the simplicity, in front of the beauty of small things. They are women who do not need to scream their femininity. Because they have clear in themselves what they are. Expressed in different ways but with a common denominator: do not be afraid to be countercurrent showing sweetness and sensitivity. Because the rebellion can be implemented with the smile. The girls I have designed, do not want to conquer the world by force, but want to improve it with the power of true kindness.
My girls are brave and strong like flowers in the wind. Resilient and flexible. They look to the future but live in the present. And they have enchanted looks because they keep, within themselves, the little girls they were. Hope, desire to discover, curiosity and wonder for small things.
And the ability to move mountains, it's worth it.
But above all, I like the idea of representing a woman image that is kind. Really kind. Not for education or tradition. Not servile, not submissive but, on the contrary, aware of the importance of kindness, altruism, listening.
I hope that to color these images inspire you, remembering that every woman has in itself a great strength, the one born of kindness and goodness.
Because true kindness, it could save the world.” (Grazia Salvo)
