"Consider The Lillies"

Worried about the price of new clothes? Credit card debt? House appraised for more than it's worth? I consider the lillies of the valley that are growing along the front of the house and are spreading around to the back yard for free. This piece was shipped back and forth across the country to three different galleries untill it sold to the right collector on Cape Cod.


When I moved to Twin Lakes, my friend Julie invited me to a daylily farm where the proprietor allowed us to dig up as many plants as we wanted. They are planted along the fence. Call me "Mr. Monet". My approach is definitely botanically correct, sorry Claude. There is something winsome and sad about a blossom that lasts just one day.
