Art and Flowers

Art and Flowers

It was a fun week-end at the Tower Hill Winter in Bloom event, where floral designers were tasked to interpret selected paintings from local artists. It was great to be in the good company of artists Maryann Mullett, Pam Short and Barry Van Dusen, just to name a few.

Thank you to floral designer Anne Berndtson for her lovely arrangement of my Alliums painting. Her interpretation title is "Transitions".

Here is her Statement of Intent: This arrangement focuses on a few elements to capture the painting's atmospheric yellow and the almost imperceptible shift into a shadier green side of the garden. The yellow vase filled with yellow Mimosa and Eucalyptus seeds echoes the canvas background. Purple flowers stand tall with green fronds and pink Genista trailing over the vase like the shadow on the flowers. Dark purple and green Trachelium hint of the background.
