A visual conversation: Day 8

Spring is in full bloom here in Vancouver…so I thought I’d have a “retrospective” visual conversation highlighting “flowers” I’ve done, beginning with my most recent, of which I had no initial intention of creating as flowers…they just seemed to appear!!

I thought I’d also include some of my early influences “in the floral department”…

Bobbie Burgers of Vancouver, Canada whose use of color will always captivate my senses.

Henry Huai Xu of China’s work caught my eye a few years ago because of his simple palette knife work, a touch in the right place is all that was necessary.

It’s so invigorating to take a pause, to smell the roses, to reflect on the past and enjoy the day.
