Note from the artist about this piece:
Georgia O,Keeffe perfectly described why I love doing flower photography: “When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else.” She also said, “I decided that if I could paint that flower in a big scale, you could not ignore its beauty.” I'm lucky to have a farmers market close by where a flower farm from mid-state Massachusetts sells peonies in the spring and dahlias in late summer. I place individual flowers and small bouquets in a black box and use natural light to photograph these beauties.
