Helen's Preserved Wedding Flowers

The colors and design from Helen's invitation were the inspiration for the background on her wedding flower painting.
These wedding flowers; lysianthus, roses, orange callas and green/purple hydrangea preserved very nicely and worked well with the background colors taken from the wedding announcement. This was done on a 12x16 gallery wrapped canvas.

In Memory of Colin 2011

When the flowers arrived, I re-cut the stems and immediately put the flowers in fresh water. They consisted of white and yellow daisies, blue carnations, blue baby's breath, small white callas and autumn ferns and blue hydrangea.
They were then photographed and went immediately to the press.
Here is the finished preserved memorial flowers in a 11 x 14 canvas.
