"Wildflowers in a Pitcher", 8 by 10 inches, acrylic on panel.

"Five Wildflowers", 6 by 6 inches, acrylic on panel.

"Invented Wildflower", 6 by 6 inches, acrylic on panel.

This is an idealized idea of bringing wildflowers in and putting them in a vase or other container, because they don't really last very long under those circumstances. But these paintings function more symbolically anyway, addressing the need to bring the outside world into our protected interiors, both literally and metaphorically.
