A Still Life Of Flowers

The progression was: First I thought of a Dutch master, then I wondered about Dutch renaissance painters, which led me to Hieronymus Bosch, but his work is too dense and doesn't really display well. So then I expanded to simply Dutch painters, and was about to pull the trigger on a punishment you ingrates richly deserve....Mondrian! And then I got a nasty feeling in the pit of my stomach and thought that de Kooning would be even more fitting. But my coffee was particularly good this morning, so you have been given a reprieve.
