About the artwork

Flower Picker, Linoleum block print

Carl picked flowers every day and brought them back to his apartment to make it look and smell pretty. When Carl picked the most beautiful flower he had ever seen, Bug surprised him, insisting that Carl put the flower back; the flower was Bug's home and picking it was ruining it.

Carl ignored Bug, but his guilt, along with the protests that Bug and his friends hold on Carl's kitchen table, make Carl reconsider his decision. Can Bug and Carl come to a compromise?
