Artist's Statement: A single rose, painted on the smallest of surfaces. The background purposely indistinct: no stems, no leaves, no thorns. The vibrantly red petals and their asymmetrical but beautiful pattern are thus the focus and entirety of the painting.

Artist's Statement: If memory serves, my husband gave me these tulips. Two days later, I found myself distressingly anxious about a series of paintings I had then been working on for several weeks.

Artist's Statement: Despite the lyrics quoted below, in the language of flowers yellow roses symbolize friendship – hence the title of this work.

In the midst of the foliage surrounding the non-denom
Artist's Statement: This painting is the epitome of "imaginative painting." The oranges, their basket, its labels – are from a Parisian market. The ducklings are from a sketch I made at the Minnesota State Fair. Oil on Canvas 15.5 x 27.5 in Paris is always a good idea.

Artist's Statement: At the other end of the day from the breakfast in Tuesday's painting, and across an ocean and a gulf from Cornwall - a dinner of fine oysters served late at night in Mexico City.
