Penzance Bouquet

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

Penzance is a port town on the southern side of the English county of Cornwall, about three miles north of the town of Mousehole. Penzance was once known for its pirates, and many parts of Cornwall have a hardscrabble kind of beauty. This painting reflects another side of Cornwall – the beauty of its flowers.

We've got to learn how to not look at creed or color. Look at how beautiful a bouquet of roses looks like - different color roses, all look beautiful. We have to learn how to let our beauty of the color of our roses shine to the world.

Charles Bradley American singer The Screaming Eagle of Soul

It's better to get a rosebud while you're alive than a whole bouquet after you're dead.
