The reference for this painting was a tiny snippet from a photo in a gardening magazine. It was of a flower in full bloom above a leaf. In the development of the painting it has turned into something a bit more sinister, twisted sideways and with a glow behind. Still a living, growing object, but maybe more of nightmares than dreams. But I like it, I think there is a story there somewhere.
