Why Flowers?

Before I started painting again, I enjoyed filling my house with fresh cut flowers every week but felt bad every time I had to throw away the dying bouquets. I do love the occasional cut flowers, but I’m finally improving my track record with potted plants, and for flowers, I have paintings everywhere now – brilliant bouquets that don’t fade and die. In my mind, as far as décor goes, there’s room for flowers everywhere. They are also a flexible subject, which encourages vast freedom of creativity. In the words of one of my favorite artists in England, Imogen Skelley, in her correspondence with me, 

“A vase of flowers is always the right thing, don’t you agree?”
