I'm thrilled to have another painting as part of a group exhibit through Vancouver's Federation Gallery. Painters are partnering with the Vancouver Branch of the Sogetsu School of Japanese flower arranging. Artists from both disciplines celebrate the rejuvenating power of springtime, as we express gratitude and manifest optimism for the future. Ikebana began when Buddhist monks made flower offerings to their temples. Today, visitors can reflect on the ancient history of zen flower arranging while contemplating the arrival of better days. “Spring is starting to grace us with her presence," explains Gallery Coordinator Helen Duckworth. "Bloom will leave visitors feeling restored and rejuvenated.”This one is a 6x8 inch framed piece titled 'Lilium'. The exhibition is titled BLOOM and can be viewed online here.
