This piece began as a commission for someone who lives in Michigan who wanted a composition created entirely of Michigan plants. I happen to spend the summers in a tiny village on the Michigan/Indiana border right on the shores of Lake Michigan, so I picked all summer. I even found an intact Eastern Swallowtail butterfly lying on the road. The placing of the flowers began with the marvelous blue billow hydrangeas from a neighbor's garden, then came the rose of Sharon hibiscus, which looked like those little lanterns we made with our boys, lifted by a candle into the night sky over the dark lake.
