Created around May 22. 36″ x 24″. I was eager to try something new using hard lines and had this brown canvas lying around, one of the last of several I recently bought. “FLORES GRATIA FLORIBUS” is Latin for “Flowers for the sake of Flowers”. I got the idea from the Metro Goldwyn Mayer motto “Ars gratia Artis”, which is Latin for “art for art’s sake” and was a catchphrase/slogan for the Impressionists.
