Discuss

Artist Charles Banks Wilson painted this portrait of Thomas Gilcrease, the museum’s founder, seated in front of Gilcrease with the Osage Hills behind him. In the lower left corner, you can see some azaleas in bloom. These azaleas can be seen all over the Gilcrease grounds during springtime.

If an artist created a portrait of you, what flowers would you want to add to represent you and why? Talk with your family and friends about flowers you would choose to represent yourselves and one another.
