In a small, 3.5 in. square accordion book, titled "the Nine Flowers of E 4th Street"; is the silent story of nine different flowers. Each frame is adapted from the nine 7 x 7 in. paintings, that I have since distrubted to maternal forces as a small gesture of appreciation for her brilliant inspiration.
This little book contains my experiences, as a painter/gardener, within the three gardens of East 4th Street between Ave. C and D. This small corner of New York City, during warm wheather magic, brings to life the plethora of blossoms that celebrate the onlookings of East Villagers. I hope that this work will urge all who live in a city to seek out these patches of natural refuge, and find a resource to infuse their city experience with a sense of gentleness.
Dear Friend, I wish for you a happy advent of spring, sowing seeds, and whatching the radiance of life unfold!
