I was in the grocery store one day, photographing fresh flowers. I didn't see anyone watching me, but I heard over the loud speaker "customer assistance required in the floral department." Uh-oh, I thought. Somebody doesn't realize I'm just planning to buy one of the already composed and priced bouquets. I don't need assistance. I grabbed these flowers and the lighting was so pretty. I couldn't resist zooming in and photographing the roses a little more. Then I hear the big voice say "Urgent! Customer requires assistance in the floral department NOW!" I still have no clue if it was me or the tardy employee who was being yelled at by the god in charge, but I hightailed it to the cash register and didn't look back!
This painting hung at art shows in CA, the Salmagundi Club on 5th Avenue in NYC, PA. But I originally created it for my solo show at Ellis Nicholson Gallery in Charleston, SC. The gallery owner retired, but I have such fond memories of her and the shows around the corner from Rainbow Row!
