I was struck by the beauty of this vase of gladiolas in my kitchen one Sunday. I immediately dragged my easel and paints to that very spot and did not leave until I finished. What a memorable process that was. It was unusual for me to respond with such spontaneity and I've decided that those flowers simply wanted to be painted. Gladiolas, I have learned, are quite bossy.
