Bouquet – natura morte

Oil on Belgian linen

The diverse, extraordinary forms of the underlying structure of leaves, seeds or flowers; of creatures like snakes, crabs, birds, and mammals; and of shells, sponges, seaweed or wood, that remain when the force of life has departed, seem insignificant and of little consequence.

But these intimate aspects of the natural world build soil and landscape in their own way, and who has not picked up a tiny skeleton, shell, unusual stone or withered flower, to marvel?
