One day, I  found myself engaged with unbelievable lines, curves, and shapes.  All priceless art—out in the world, for everyone to enjoy, at no cost.  These flowers popped up at their own bidding, not caring if anyone was around, or if the viewer had purchased a ticket to an exhibition. Some closed in the rain or cold, some opened in afternoon sunshine.  Some have different colors on the inside or the outside.  All looked like they had studied in some sophisticated color theory class.​ I had to share it!

This painting and others are also being represented by Piper Custom Framing and Fine Art Center 1825 S Minnesota Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57105
