Proven to create an immediate and long-term positive impact on attitude, conduct and retention, flowers have established a unique niche in the human experience. The role of flowers to enrich human experience can be found worldwide cultures throughout history. Whether they are used for religious, romantic or decoration purposes, the allure of blossoms have rooted their way into our daily lives and our psyche.
As an artist, the inspiration from this natural splendor creates a reason for meditative reflection and a search for the expressive peace found within both the process and subject. I choose the flowers I paint by being moved through their sense of unique character with the idea that the flower no longer serves its innate purpose of beauty but becomes personified with rich character and silent story telling. So I ask you, the viewer to welcome the mood, behavior and memory enhancing effects of the floral form and find your own story with these delightfully visualized Kansas wildflower paintings.
