Memorial Pictures

I finished a set of three memorial pictures last month.  The order came from a dear friend following the loss of her Mother.  She wanted the flowers from the service preserved in the form of three 11 x 14" framed pieces for her and her two sisters.  The white pom pom mum daisies were a challenge to press.  They just didn't want to dry and some were starting to turn brown.  Finally, I placed the press in my oven after warming it to 170 degrees and then turning it off.  After a few cycles I saw a dramatic difference.  I mounted each picture in a simple black frame and my customer was extremely happy with the results.  I've posted two of the three (unframed) pieces below.
