Orange Peony


“Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

― Georgia O’Keeffe


Inspired by the beauty of a peony and the desire of Georgia O’Keefe to encourage us all to slow a while and behold the beauty of a flower. Created to complement the macro botancial photos of Jane Ussher who participated with me in the Return to Love, Group Exhibition, 2021 (With Jane Ussher and Grant Gallager)
