Artwork Description

Flora was the Roman goddess of flowers, or of the flowering of plants. I originally called this painting ‘La mort de Flore’ (The death of Flora). Flora was originally worshipped as the goddess of seeds and fruit. Later, she became the goddess of all that flowers’.When was Flora first worshipped? We know that her festival the Floralia, was introduced to Rome around 200 BC. But when was Flora last worshipped, was last taken seriously?

This is awesome work, Ian! I love the mood, colors--everything about this piece! There's a luminescent quality to your paintings--I can see where the inspiration from the pre-Raphaelite period comes into play. Thanks for sharing your beautiful art!

I don't think people tend to take myths seriously, but nice job on the flowers...

I am blown away by the dreamlike worlds you create. Those flowers are so gorgeous, and the little hedgehog is adorable. I visited your site, and I really love all of your creations.

full of spring... exactly what we need now, with winter's grip not loosening

Art at its best.
