A stirring portrait of a snow-white dahlia in full blossom. This whimsical piece is part of a numbered edition of 175 in each size. A reminder of our ephemeral nature, this dahlia comes in varying sizes: 8x10 inches, 16 x 20 inches, and 18 x 24 inches, unframed and printed on Giclée museum quality paper. This paper is archival, created for longevity, and the finest imagery that can be obtained through printing. The more one gazes at this contemplative image; the more one feels the collateral beauty in every petal. The spectrum of the human heart is all captured in a single portrait of a blooming flower. The 16x20 inches and 18 x 24 inches come with a signed Certificate of Authenticity signed, numbered, dated, and embossed with artist seal. Flowers are part of the human experience, like all of nature. Something about flowers calls to our souls as we transition through life. At every celebration of coming and passing, they are beside us. This stark white dahlia, against a shadowed background, captures the feeling of grief. Grief is a necessary emotion. A gift of collateral beauty, teaching us how deeply we love.

Have you ever spent an hour after the sun falls below the horizon just to watch the colors shift? From the blazing brightness to the subtle golden hour glow, a show of orange, red, pink, and purple hues to the periwinkle dusk. Then the ombré blue that holds mountains in its easy embrace. Sometimes without knowing why, when our hearts witness unimaginable beauty, they can also feel heavy with the knowledge of the impermanence. The gravity of our fleeting time in these bodies, on this tiny orbiting planet of earth and air. Art is truly one of the most fascinating gifts of being human. We yearn to capture moments, to hold them a little while longer. To create images that haven’t been created before, to move our bodies in a state of freedom that is so untamed we forget that one day our bones will ache, and our movement will be more languid than urgent. Grief is a kaleidoscope of feelings. If it took a tangible form, it would most definitely be a dahlia blooming at first light—the unfolding of a million little pieces of feeling and being. Flurries of petals weave with one another to create a sight that lingers on far after this life. The ultimate gift of fine art photography is the ability to treasure quiet moments of time, from the dimple on your mother’s cheek to the flowers in their full expression. Photography is the gentle salve for a grieving heart, a recollection of all that was, and a promise for all that will be.
