Last Saturday, the Studio Channel Islands Art Center gang descended on a flower farm in Somis, CA. On what was a beautiful morning with some billowy clouds above, many of us wondered around looking down rows of flowers to find inspiration for a morning painting. I was struck by a simple scene of a lone woman picking an armful of purple status flowers. I got the VW bus situated and put some Pink Floyd on the stereo and set up. In a short time I was done with this little 5″ x 7″ sketch called “Status Worker”. (Click for larger view)
