Description Calla lilies bloom late in the spring in some regions and are grown from rhizomes. Other names for the calla include: arum lily, trumpet lily, pig lily, and the water dragon. To some extent communication in the language of flowers has become a lost art. There was once a time, when the rules of decorum required lovers to express their passion and hopes through the gift of flowers.The flower chosen, the color, and the arrangement all carried a subtle - sometimes secret message. The Pink reflects elegance, and communicates admiration. A single pink calla lily, is a statement of respect meant to honor the union of lovers in marriage. The flower is used to communicate sympathy for the loss of a loved one and the restoration of innocence of the departed soul.The calla lily is also a popular Easter flower and represents the rebirth of Spring. In my home state, Florida, these beautiful flowers begin blooming in February.

At eight years old in the late 50’s, I started private training in traditional oil techniques. To this day, I owe my appreciation to my mother, who has since passed away. Through considerable personal sacrifice, she nurtured my artistic talent and provided me with the tools and circumstances to begin my creative journey - the journey that I still follow. I cherish the memories of the art exhibits and museums that we visited in Manhattan. I later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's and up until the late 80's, I exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. Presently, I reside in Florida with my loving wife, who I've been married to for thirty years. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, I turned to creating digital hand painted images and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that I had once found in oils. - Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz)
