In 2006, at 70s, I started my painting journey and decided to begin it with flowers. Why? Because I love them, I know them, studied them in China as part of Chinese traditional painting curriculum and they seemed to be easy to me. In that summer of 2006, a Florist Shop, changing weekly a display of flowers, offered the needed flowers to dedicate each watercolor painting to an imaginary arrangement. Holding just one flower in my hand, rotating, observing it and instantly deciding the composition, made me satisfied and happy. I painted many imaginary arrangements of beautiful flowers, known and unknown to me.
