For Art in Bloom 2010, April 24-26,2010, at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Thelma Shoneman, arranger, and Susanne Fuller, assistant, interpreted the painting titled "Reclining Nude" by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner 1902.

Their container and fabric captures the green colored divan the nude woman reclines upon. The graceful left to right slope of yellow roses depicts her body. The roses and euphorbia pick up the texture of the paint on the canvas. A flax leaf was sliced and intertwined to echo the bend of her elbow and curve of her legs. Anemone, poppy and wavy fern portray the wall covering behind her. Thelma has rolled galex leaves into a form that creates an entirely new flower!
