Raised by a scientist father in a family that frequently had conversations revolving around micro-organisms at the dinner table, it’s little wonder that when I look at a flower I also think about the critters under the ground that help it grow… and the insects that spread pollen, etc. It’s all a part of the circle of life. To me, it’s ALL beautiful.
The painting was created with oil on birch plywood. The patterned areas on black are all carved, so there’s a textural surface.
