• Night Flowers

  • Back

If you’ve ever stayed out in the gardens after the gates are locked and the moon has risen, you’ll understand the excitement and passion of the gardens at night. Under the stars, I conceive my paintings as passages from Ovid, Solomon, Shakespeare, and all great poets who wrote timeless verse about flowers and the seductiveness of the night.

I’ve always included one or two night-garden scenes in each collection. For years, it’s been a dream to create an entire collection of night flowers. As the son of a librarian and a Shakespearian, I’ve also been influenced by the verse and romantic stories from antiquity that still hold sway in our culture today. Aphrodite, Guanyin, and Apollo and many more come alive in the steamy splendor of Night Flowers.
