Most of the flower paintings has stories behind them:
Chinatown is not far from my studio, a Chinese senior planted some of the most beautiful Dahlias in the neighborhood I took photos of them when it was in their prime .Eventually, I got to know the owner. One time she even came to my art opening
one year, after the long winter I went by her house something looked different, her little garden was missing the usual spring flowers. She was gone! i have no idea if you has moved or pass away. I never see her again and her beautiful dahlias were missed.
