Looking through my old art books over the weekend, I found my imagination captured by romantic floral arrangements painted by Henri Fantin-Latour (1863-1904). They called to mind the stunning present-day arrangements of Studio Choo and I thought about the completely timeless beauty of fleeting objects.Those were happy, transcending thoughts to have while recovering.
Thank you to all of you who sent me kind e-mails and tweets and Facebook messages over the last few days. I'm getting there... This feels like a step in the right direction.
