...and I photograph flowers. I just can't get enough of the flowers blooming everywhere from my white star magnolia that blooms in January along with the roses (only in California folks) to the full bloom riot of color in April and whatever chooses to pop up each month afterwards, I am picking, arranging, buying and planting flowers. Here is an arrangement of storebought parrot tulips with homegrown lilacs (that took me 4 dead plants til I finally planted one that liked it here)
I carried around my favorite log vase filled with the pretty blossoms and photographed them all over the house for just the right setting. I photographed them in my bathroom, in the entry where they sat and then on the window seat where I liked the colors in the afternoon filtered light best. I added some artistic filters in Photoshop and a texture because I wanted it to look like an old master painting. I am making a set to print on canvas for my guest bedroom. What do you think?
