The mixed media paintings are the first of the flower paintings I made. The collage of fabric, against the painted trompe l'oeil “fabric”, relief print ink on paper windows and oil painted vase combine to make a composite “home”, mirroring my private life at the time where I felt displaced through a series of moves from state to state to follow work. The vase with flowers is a symbol of myself in an unfamiliar setting.
