AN HONEST MAN
The story behind this painting is the bouquet of honesty flowers (real flower). They are white and so is the man's scarf - he is an honest man. The bouquet is slightly shaped into an arrow. He is giving the flowers to his lover and they are an arrow - like cupid's - to her heart. He is an old fashioned man, possibly from the 30's or 40's. It is this old fashioned love that keeps them togeher.
