  1. I am glad to have such a nurishing encounter with these highly accomplished artwork. The chosen theme of painting flowers and weeds is particularly difficult,because of its extreme popularity.Banality and over-sweetness are the chief dangers,but I believe that the artist,Fidelia Bridges has very successfuly avoided them.It was done by paying great and loving attention to the observation, morphology and truth of the painted objects.The truth is never boring or banal or overly sweet.Indeed it is always fascinating, meaningful and freshly gathered. Now-put her work against Rauschenberg and tell me who is an artist and who is a fraud?
