The act of painting is about one heart telling another heart where he found salvation.
-Francisco Goya 

This painting is so very idealistic it hurts!  

It is belongs in the room of a young girl.  My grandmother and mother made me a quilt of these same colors when I was a child.  Feminine and ornate this painting reminds me of the Palace of Versailles and Baroque style.  The flowers that were in front of me last night as I painted it...  they are the objects that are so beautiful they are my salvation.  They are my comfort. 

A contemporary artist can use the findings of all epochs and all styles, from the most primitive literary expressions up to the most refined products of the baroque.
-Juan Goytisolo
