Lorraine's Invitation Inspired Painting

Lorraine had a wonderful "birds and branches" themed wedding, and shared all her storyboard ideas and invitation graphics with me. She wanted the painting to mimic her RSVP card, using her bouquet flowers as the buds and flowers on the branches! I love the result, which is a 16x20 canvas painting to be hung horizontally!

Here is a detailed photo of the flowers, which are all pressed as single petals and then reassembled as whole flowers or buds onto the canvas and sealed into the painting. I add details that are not preserved when pressed, such as the center of the flowers and a few leaves (some bouquets do have real leaves I can use!).
