Preserved Wedding Bouquet Painting, Mika August 8, 2010

Mika wanted a large 24 x 36 painting in horizontal format. She had a wide variety of flowers so it was no problem showing all of them off in the painting.
The couple's living room walls are a pale peach, so I used a hint of peach in the background with the green surrounding the flowers and leaves.

Preserved wedding bouquet painting, Kendall and Joe, August 13, 2010

The bridesmaids bouquets had beautiful white star gazer lilies and claret red roses with white hydrangeas, which I added to the painting.
The bride's bouquet was beautiful claret red roses with crystals mimicking dew drops.
Originally the couple wanted their preserved wedding flowers in a horizontal painting. But, they liked the painting vertically as well so they will change it around from time to time.
Claret roses, white star gazer lilies and hydrangeas with ferns make up this royal painting. Crystals from the bouquet were added as dew drops scattered throughout. The two ribbons entwined represent Joe and Kendall on their new journey as a married couple

Wedding Flowers Preserved for Melissa, August 28, 2010

Melissa and her husband wanted their painting to reflect their wedding colors of blue and yellow, but with a pop of red to fit in with their living room furniture that has the color red in the fabric.
I used the seeded eucalyptus and added little red berries to add a bit of red to the painting.
The wedding flower bouquet consisted of blue delphiniums, blue iris, white roses, white orchids, ferns, and seeded eucalyptus.
