Flower Alley

Flower Alley, 2006. Acrylic on panel, 16" x 48."

Flower Alley won the 2005 Travers Stakes at Saratoga. I considered naming the blog after him, but he lost by a nose to Nohasslatdcastle (metaphorically of course, this would never happen in real life).

I'm a sucker for flower paintings. Don't groan, there are some really good ones - the group of little flower pictures that Manet did on his deathbed are probably going to be the subject of a future installment of "Paintings I Like."
