ABOUT THE PAINTING
A Night Blooming Cereus are short lived, night blooming flowers, some for only a single night. The background is an experimental technique in an attempt to strengthen the subtle symbolism.
Although I studied frame restoration at the Louvre in Paris, France, I prefer to sell my original oil paintings unframed due to the history of frames and the framing process.
I feel that the frame finishes the painting and offers the patron an outlet to express their response to the painting and to contribute to the completion of the artwork.
It brings me joy to see the various ways in which my patrons have chosen to complete their pieces.
