Paintings are about relationships. (In my world of painting, that is). Relationships between light and dark, warm and cool, foreground, mid-ground and background, large and small, lots of others, and the relationships between the objects in the painting. Here, because of the size difference, I feel a like there is a family conversation going on between the flowers. So I have chosen the ending line of the HBO series Rome to use as a title. It suggests that the conversation is going to get very interesting. One of the few standards I hold myself to when I paint is,
It has to be interesting,
otherwise why bother? But of course, what is of interest to one person, is not necessarily of interest to another.
