Filling the Winter with Flowers
Updated: Jan 21, 2020
It's only 3 weeks into the new decade, but I've been feeling inspired to create new art. With the Vermont winter weather keeping me inside, I've been holed up in my cozy studio pressing flowers and creating new original floral art. Please take a look at some of the new pressed flower art I've made in 2020 - and let me know what you think.
The first new piece made in 2020 is named for my cat Harry who sneaked into my studio and watched intently as I was arranging and gluing the flowers. Normally, cats are not allowed in the studio but on this day Harry was so perfectly behaved, rather than shooing him out, I named the piece for him.
The colorful array of flowers includes bachelor buttons, cosmos, salvia, California bluebells, stock, and wild sunflowers. These flowers are sure to brighten any wall in your home.
Harry's Garden is made for a 16 x 20" mat and frame. It is available for sale with or without the mat and frame. Contact me if you're interested in purchasing this piece.
Also known as alstroemeria, this flower comes in a variety of colors and is a favorite cut flower because its vase life is so long. Each stem will have blooms for up to 2 weeks.
Peruvian lilies are also great for flower pressing. These 3 purple lilies were pressed individually with the flower and leaves attached to the stem.
Like all my pressed flower art, this piece was sprayed with a UV resistant, acrylic sealer for protection. It is made for a 12 x 14" frame.
Contact me if you would like a similiar piece but with different color flowers.
I'm not sure just what kind of hydrangea this is but I do know it came from Cape Cod which is known for outstanding hydrangeas.
Each floret from the flower head was snipped off and pressed individually in a Microfleur- a microwave flower press. The florets were then arranged to resemble the original flower head. Gluing each floret is time-consuming but well worth the time and effort. The finished piece is made for a 12 x 14 frame. It is available framed or unframed.
I have plenty of other works as well, available in frames, unframed, as bookmarks or greeting cards.
