Artist's description:

After a major surgery, my wife Therese decided to keep and dry the flowers she was given while at the hospital. As caregiver, I was unable to get outdoors to sketch so the flowers became my subject.

I had not done much representational work before, but the process turned out to be a beneficial distraction. Tedious detail, which I normally avoid, was actually enjoyable and therapeutic. With each new piece, my natural brush work began to emerge as a contrast and compliment to the realism. The results were both pleasing and cathartic.

Roses for Therese became the largest and most personal series I have produced to date. Emotions from a difficult time in our lives are unsympathetically exposed in this work and I will never forget the unexpected healing and satisfaction this group of paintings provided.
