Spring Flowers, Rockwell's only known still life painting, was inspired by his wife, Molly, and her love of gardening and flowers. Even though there are no human figures in the painting, it certainly includes a human presence. Through his rendering of the shoes, the gardening gloves, the beribboned hat, and the flowers and branches on the comfortable-looking old chair, Rockwell has produced a powerful portrait of a woman in touch with nature through the medium of her garden.
