Historical Context:
"With my back ground of flowers and gardens, plus the beauty of Floridian flowers, it was very natural for me to be drawn to present them in my art. I have always had the ability to sketch freehand. So I make many detailed sketches of each flower and how it grows, which I utilize into a final presentation and mix watercolors to match the color of the flower petals. My goal is to do each of the flowers we grow in our garden. This is my hobby and I only sketch and paint for fun, and to bring some pleasure to others." - Joseph E. Appelt
