Pensée in French means thought. A pensée is also a flower, given its name from its expressive likeness to a pensive human face. It is a flower that possesses a litany of artistic usage throughout history. A bouquet of pansies means a bouquet of thoughts. Ann Craven’s Pensée watercolors become an extended portrait of the human spirit.
