About: Floral Paintings

Painting flowers for me is somewhat like writing fiction. The Author (Painter) has something to say and the truth revealed in fiction can so often be more honest than telling a story through just the facts. The story I think flowers have to tell is about impermanence. They are temporal, transient, cyclical.

Floral Paintings are important to me as they are the a representation of life itself. Like flowers, we are temporal. We have only a little while to blossom before we begin to fade. Flowers offer up their beauty and hope and then they are gone. And they do all of this without complaint, a lesson I most need to learn.
