Flowers convey many symbolic themes to the viewer. They innately present a feeling of beauty. But they may speak to some about the fragility of life. Since I hope to convey universal human responses in my work, I often portray flowers as a symbol of my hope in renewal and rebirth. This painting was executed with fluid pigments which speak to the transference of energy in a direct manner to the paper. This is my way of addressing the spirit of the viewer, so spirit speaks to spirit. I attempted to render a narrow focus to direct the viewer's attention specifically to the subject involved without his being distracted by superfluous activity. I particularly enjoy painting wildflowers, which bring us joy without excess pampering by a gardener. They are becoming rare.
