The Floods
Florence Buttleman

Spring BuildingWe only had two occasions to visit with Florence "Bobby" Flood, Mrs. Warren Buttleman.

The first time was when we visited her in Houston, Texas. My husband was there on a training school and I was expecting my second child. Never have I been treated so well. Every day she scheduled a different activity. We saw, museums, art galleries, ate in French restaurants, and even went to a banquet for a Senator.

It was a lovely experience to see how well she fit into the Houston scene. The southern hospitality was at its best and it was a memory to keep. I sent her back two very small paintings in impasto with lovely heavy larger frames. The colors were very light and soft. She hung them for years over her dining room buffet chest. When they built their new home she used the color scheme though out the house. After she passed her children sent them back to me via John and Wenona Flood, my husband's parents. It was a moving experience. To have only met her for a couple of times yet; she had so much respect for my work.
