Black poppies and sweet peas.


Of flowers.

I got my paints out today.  It had been a long while! At first my hand felt sloppy and my touch was all muddled. I mixed too many colors together and wondered if I had succumbed to my petal art forever. But practice makes nearly perfect and I adore the end result!  

 I also tried out one of the lavish horizontal bouquets I’ve been drooling over on Instagram. I used flowers from my garden and my moms. Happiness! It felt like an arbour of roses on the mantle. 

 And speaking of mothers, I made this interpretation of Klimt’s Mother and Child for Mother’s Day! It’s a piece de resistance of sorts…the culmination of our adventure in Vienna and my newfound career as a flower fairy. I’m still excited to one day redo his elderly woman in paint!
