Rarely do I narrow my focus to still life, in essence bringing the glory of nature indoors.
My challenge in Lilac Bouquet is to convey the sensual experience of the garden in my
portrayal of this lavish bouquet. I want my viewers to delight at the delicate contrast of
mauves and purples, to sense the rich perfume of lilacs wafting on the breeze, to imagine
the buzz of bees hovering about the flowers.
Lilac Bouquet extends my celebration of this regal and fragrant shrub; it is, in effect, a
companion to Lilac Gazebo.
