Le Jardin is a small 12" x 24" oil on canvas floral which was painted in March 2002 in Hermosa Beach, California. It is part of the 9/11 series of 3,047 florals. It was the first painting which sold, and it sold to a physician in southern California based on a photograph of the painting which I was looking at while sitting in the doctor's lounge in a South Bay Hospital.
