WOMEN AND FLOWERS

A gorgeous flower image always catches my gaze. A figure in the picture adds a sense of scale and time. I picture myself in that moment, in the image, with those flowers, in that mood. Wearing that dress. Take the woman out of the picture and it is no longer a moment – just flowers. The centuries are different but the flowers are the same.
