#177 - Autumn Brilliance

This landscape captures the brillant colors of Fall in all its glory.  I especially love the contrast of the orange, yellow and red leaves with the river and waterfall.  The birch trees are made with real birch bark. The foreground is decorated with goldenrod and purple loosetrife which are in bloom this time of year.

Botanicals: Poplar, burning bush, smoke bush, asiatic lily, poplar, and miscellaneous Fall leaves; birch bark, banana skin, cotton, fern, garlic skin, purple loosestrife, goldenrod, and beehive.

This 11" x 14" framed original was sold at the Hunt Country Vineyards Harvest Festival (Oct 2013).

This pressed flower landscape features a pair of chickadees made primarily from leaves overseeing a beautiful summer garden.  They are singing their song of happiness for the world to hear.

Botanicals include:  Delphinium, larkspur, salvia, speedwell, astilbe, cardinal, daisy, coreopsis, lobelia, scabiosa, thryallis, deutzia, hollyhock, alyssum, Queen Anne’s lace, maidenhair fern along with white poplar, lily of the valley, ningma, burning bush and miscellaneous leaves,  

This 11x14" framed piece sold at the Beaver Lake Harvest Festival before the show officially opened.  What a great start of a two-day show!


#171 - Butterfly Bouquet

Although I haven't posted anything recently, I have  been extremely busy.  This colorful piece features a beautiful peony which is adorned with lavender roses, larkspur, coral bell, salvia and fern.  These fragrant flowers are so fresh that their nectar is being feasted by a dozen butterflies.  This piece was sold at the Experiment Station Show in November 2013.
