An abandoned pool behind my childhood home in the South became the touchstone for a body of work about loss, passage, memory, and perseverance. Meanwhile, as I was leaving my home California, I purchased flowers as an act of love and gratitude, and painted arrangements inspired by floral designs found in vintage garden club calendars.
