CONVERSATION - Christi Belcourt

Canadian artist Christi Belcourt created this dotted floral pattern painting on a black background symbolizing nineteenth-century M├ętis beadwork. From her Lessons from the Earth exhibition (2003) the central flower symbolizes her mentor, a woman who was a great connector.

As a fan of anything floral and decorative, this intricate piece is right down my alley: color, pattern, folk art-oriented and whimsy.
