[caption id="attachment_9049" align="alignleft" width="500" caption="I painted the background of this piece at a couple of years ago. I always envision the background of my paintings first having no idea what I'll paint on top until I'm satisfied with the backdrop. The unfinished painting sat in my studio for a long time before I picture these dahlias exploding on the classic motif I created in blue and green."][/caption]
