Artist"s notes.

Beauty is a strange thing, isn't it? What may be beautiful to one may not be beautiful to another. A woman gives her love sometimes freely, sometimes at great cost to herself and others. Then, like a flower she is gone.

I've always wanted to quote the Boss, Bruce Springsteen. One of my favorites is "Secret Garden." This song doesn't cover all the thoughts, images, and themes of this digital painting.Nor in itself doesn't begin to cover the mystery of woman. But, I may not be here tomorrow, so here goes.

Secret Garden
She'll let you in her house
If you come knockin' late at night
She'll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She'll let you deep inside
But there's a secret garden she hides
She'll let you in her car
To go drivin' round
She'll let you into the parts of herself
That'll bring you down
She'll let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don't think twice
You've gone a million miles
How far'd you get
To that place where you can't remember
And you can't forget
She'll lead you down a path
There'll be tenderness in the air
She'll let you come just far enough
So you know she's really there
She'll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She's got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away
