Expressive Flowers

Wildflower thoughts: from the spirit of an expressive artist

It all started with an Anthropologie window display. I’m always inspired by the color, textures, and art on merchandise bags. But this display caught my eye, and I’ve been dreaming ever since.

…and for a while this idea was fresh in my mind, until I started painting. I had an old calendar book and it’s been colorful, whimiscal and wonderful!

Various papers painted with vibrant orange and pink tones

I’ve got quite a collection.

This spring or summer, my collage flowers will be a book. Each page with its own blooming thought. I want my book to be a silly delight for the spirit. That sounds like a great idea!

As a sweet for Valentine’s Day, I will be painting roses. I’ll be swatching all of my pink paint and mixing viva magenta, working with fluorescent pink, I’m going to study stems and leaves, explore different tools, and work on texture…it’s going to be good. I’m filling out my agenda and will begin the roses project in January and lead up to February.
