These flower prints bring forth the sweet summer romances of our youth - the color palette is soft but cheerful, the arrangements are lush but contained. Echoing the beginning of the season, a delicate vibrancy is captured in the petals. As we gaze into the blushing blossoms we can feel the excitement of a summer well-lived. The Blushing Romance series sprinkles us with that timeless warm-weather enchantment at any time of year.
The peony is a sign of protection, love, and compassion. Surrounded by mythology and symbolism, the history of this flower is rich with delightful stories. Each time I look into a rosy peony face, I can almost feel the kind, innocent energy they hold within. Pink peonies are especially symbolic to me - their feminine energy is tangible and their soft, graceful presence is infectious. They are known to bring ease to childbirth, delight to our romantic relationships, and compassion to our demeanors. I love the silkiness of their soft petals that open up to greet you - I feel they are expanding and growing, moving - similar to us women. And, what I love most about them is the joy they bring into any space. These fine art flower prints were a natural choice for the May series.
May is my favorite month of the year. It’s the month where nature really shines. As peonies ripen in their natural growth cycle, we are surrounded by decadent fruits, fresh vegetables, and glowing lightning bugs. The days are longer, the sunsets are pinker, and life is a little bit easier.
