General notes

Dated in reference to Mixed Flowers [BC052] and Flowers: St Ives [BC053].

Flora Scales added the vertical mark to the vase and the brown below the vase in 1978. At the same time the central yellow flower was worked on and the signature and date were added. The artist remarked while doing this that she had “always wanted to finish this painting.”
