Bouquet on an Oilcloth Tablecloth

Piece description from the artist

I've always loved Matisse, and I was fascinated to learn this his father worked in Belgian carpet mills, since my father worked in a mill that made linoleum reproductions of Belgian carpets. When I placed this bouquet on the oilcloth that tops the dining table on the screen porch of our summer cottage in Sedgwick, Maine, I was immediately transported back to the floral patterns of my father's "carpets."
