The title, A Course in Miracles, taken from the eponymous 1976 New Age Manifesto, encourages speculation about each element in this still life. The amount of roses--three--is a significant number in many religions and mythologies. Besides Jesus and Albert Einstein, Flack included the silent mystic Shree Krishnaji, also known as Baba. Flack used the detail of his face with the roses, hovering above the ocean, in her monumental painting, Baba.
Other examples of this print are in major museum and institutional collections, so it is quite desirable in the marketplace.
