#194 - Spring Song

Can you hear this lovely bird who is deep in song celebrating the arrival of Spring?  He was made from ningma and edelweiss leaves, thistle and banana peel.  Other botanicals include roses, deutzia, bamboo leaf and field wood rush.

This original 12" x 12" framed pressed flower art has been sold.

#193 -- Teddy Bear Wreath

Who doesn’t love teddy bears?  Wouldn’t this look lovely in a nursery or a child’s room?  The teddy bear was made primarily from pompas grass blooms which were picked and pressed just as they opened to give the soft feeling of fur. Other botanicals include larkspur, hydangea, baby’s breath, queen anne’s lace, pentas, artemesia, kudzu, ixora and banana peel.  This original 12" x 12" framed pressed flower art has been sold.

196-Barnyard Rooster

I expect this rooster will generate a lot of crowing and clucking. He was made from a hollyhock petal base, tiny burgandy flowers which pressed brown, pampas and other ornamental grass blossoms, tree bark and blanket flower. 

The beautiful barn in the background was made from poinsettia and browned daylily leaves.  Other botanicals include numerous ferns, poplar leaves, lily of the valley leaves, goldenrod, hydrangea, lobelia, moss, Queen Anne’s lace, evergreen, yarrow and chamomile. This fancy bird has been vacuum sealed and matted to a 14" x 18" oak colored frame.  The matting is mustard brown in color to enhance the browns in the barn and fence. This original piece has been sold.
