Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

Flowers can say a number of things; thank-you, I love you, get well soon, happy birthday, my condolences or just a simple sorry. 
Ask yourself the question! 
Why do we give flowers?  
Do we all love to receive them? 
Are they a mask for an underlying issue?  
Do they excuse a loved one’s behaviour?  
Why bother giving them at all when they are here for such a fleeting moment before they die? 
These 4 postcards celebrate the beauty of plants and flowers, all painted on a small scale in oils. They are a 2023 version of a still life study, mixing bold colours and simple compositions.
