My photographer friend Randy Bernardi and his wife Pat invited me to attend an artist's reception for the work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. I've heard about his beautiful black and white images but have never seen them in person. Some of his pieces were so dramatic and overpowering. One in particular was a single, striped, parrot tulip. I remember I had a similar image so decided to see what I could do. What do you think?
