The blue green (and yellow) peony was a further color exploration. Adding the white lines was a nod to the graphical design work of my past. I especially like the contrast between the blue-greens and the pink as it cements the idea that opposites need to exist for us to derive meaning in things.
For framing recommendations and ideas, I've written a short guide on frames and mats.
The "Bloom" series of flower paintings were inspired by the anti-fragility of these botanical beauties as they re-emerge after New England's harsh winters. These delicate flower's ability to come back stronger and brighter each year is a reminder that our challenges make us better, not worse. The original paintings also incorporated my poetry on the sides of the stretched canvas. A single poem was divided across multiple pieces so only a handful of lucky collectors would be able to assemble the poem. My curiosity about our apparent separation from our core nature drives the work. Starting with the question of what separates us from our authentic selves, the work encourages us to explore our connectedness to each other and to the world at large.
