ART to BRIGHTEN EVERY DAY
Expressive floral art made with imagination, colour, energy and joy
ABOUT... MY HEARTS OF FLOWERS PRINTS
Some years ago, as part of my Fantastic Flowers series, I painted some lovely hearts made of flowers, freehand drawings with black ink outlines simply coloured with acrylic inks. I always planned to do more, and might still, but I also always wanted to create different versions of them using Photoshop. In the intervening years, I’ve learned all about Photoshop so I recently indulged myself and had a great session making adjustments digitally to just a couple of the originals, my eyes popping with delight as I discovered different striking effects while I produced my pretty Hearts of Flowers prints, all in beautiful new colours.
Though I’m not particularly soppy (and in resistance to the general commercialisation of our lives), I do like to think that Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just one day a year. Every day can be Valentine’s Day – if we want it to!
I’d love to think that the purpose of these exciting new Hearts of Flowers prints is to be a visual reminder for you every day that someone loves you. And of course, that works both ways - when life gets in the way, it’s sometimes surprisingly easy to forget that simple fact, don’t you think?
