The bounty of nature, the bounty of life itself smiles at us from this sheaf of flowers, a bounty that enters into the human heart, and there finds its measure.
Many artists have been inspired by flowers in all their variety and color. It is within the world of flowers (even within an implied domestic setting) that Westendorp finds the inspiration for her vision of the world, her emotions as well as a meditative and spiritual response to the world.
