#266 - Counting Sheep
According to the Chinese zodiac 2015 was the “Year of the Sheep”. People born during this period are believed to be gentle, compassionate and kind-hearted. My sheep were created from carnation, cornflower, rose petals and banana peel. Other botanicals include corn husk,butterfly weed, artemisia and miscellaneous ferns and leaves. The background was colored with pastels. This original pressed flower art was vacuum sealed between a layer of mylar and glass. A second layer of 99% UV conservation glass covers the matting and provides enhanced color protection.
