Whereever we are in the world, however we feel in trying times we always get joy out of flowers. If I am feeling sad or low I buy some for the house and receive an instant perkup. Flowers are our constant companions to cheer us on. I painted this one last year starting on the floor. It grew and grew with many shapes and colours, they way I like it, and morphed into a large garden complete with the chaos I love so much below and bursting upwards in celebration.
