Twelve panels feature various lino-printed, cut flowers and leaves. The beauty of the flowers represent as a facade often worn by the grieving, as each flower or leaf symbolizes an individual who either passed away or survived pancreatic cancer in 2019. An estimated 56,770 adults in the US were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019, while only 11,020 were estimated to have survived. Each panel represents one month of the year, creating a focal point using a single live daisy on the ninth panel. This particular flower symbolizes my mother who passed away in September of 2019.
