Pattern Week Day 3/ Florals
Ever since the first artist picked up a stick and made a picture, nature has been one of the greatest sources of inspiration on earth. Flowers are one of my greatest sources of inspirations. The colors, textures and shapes can be interpreted in millions of ways, from modern abstract to super-realist oil paintings and impressionist watercolor renderings. Right now, I'm into over-the-top layers of florals reminiscent of the Dutch masters.
Do you have a favorite flower? I can't pick just one!
