"I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers."
- Claude Monet

Well-known as symbols of romance and the renewal of life, flowers are also inspiration to artists for the study of color in nature. Flowers embody texture, light, and shadow and are often included in still life's as well as landscapes. After a long and cold Winter, Spring gives us a much appreciated pageant of color and fragrance in the form of flowers.
