You are now viewing Wild Flower Bouquet from my Flower Painting Collection. The original painting was done with gouache on watercolor paper. The hourglass frame alludes to the idea of time passing, while the flowers personify life and how delicate we are. The flowers themselves are no particular species; though I'm sure there is a California Golden Poppy in there. I developed the frame purely from my imagination, but I wanted to speak to Art Nouveau broaches and lockets. The lace detail around the edges adds to the delicacy of the overall painting; I also wanted to incorporate lace as an echo to my Lace Flower painting and the constellations of the stars. ( read my literature from Lace Flower to get the full context of the constellation reference).
