Flower Sculptures

  A very sweet couple we just met gave us this bouquet from their wedding reception. They had these flower sculptures at all the tables.  I had to take pictures.  What a masterpiece of color and texture.  I may do a painting after this in a somewhat abstract color field.  I don't know, maybe a painting would never do the original creation justice.   We'll see.
 Though these images did get me thinking of a beautiful little piece one of my younger students painted.  It was one of her first pieces and I love its simplicity and color.  I especially like the halo effect around the head of the hydrangea and the ruffles around the leaves. 
 Children see things in a simplified, clean way.  They see shapes without thinking about them.
