She …

She always had that look about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world. ~Joanne Harris

Watercolor background, acrylic paint, pastels for the flowers, some hand-stitching, and the portrait is sketched onto off-white paper and then cut out. Find all instructions on the artist, Renee Mueller on YouTube.

Geraniums

‘Fair rich confusion is all the aim of an old~fashioned flower garden, and the greater the confusion, the richer, you want to come upon a mignonnette in unexpected places and to find sprays of heliotrope in close consultation with your roses, and geraniums sporting their uniforms like gay recruits off duty.’ ~Anna Bartlett Warner

Winter Roses

“Rarity gives a charm; so early fruits and winter roses are the most prized; and coyness sets off an extravagant mistress, while the door always open tempts no suitor.”
~Martial

Daffodils

I wanted to write about daffodils in the middle of cold
winter nights. My thoughts move to the flower’s symbol
of rebirth and new beginnings. It is also one of the first
perennials to bloom after winter, sometimes through a layer
of snow. It’s Latin name is Narcissus.
I wanted to write about the yellow color it is,
bright as the sun on a clear summer day.
It’s middle trumpet appendage calls to the other flowers,
rise as Spring is almost here.
I still smell my bouquet ignoring the pungent odor as there
is type of clean in there which I can’t ignore. I wanted to write about daffodils.

Bouquets

“Surely the flowers of a hundred springs are simply the
souls of beautiful things!”
~L.M. Montgomery, The Watchman and Other Poems

Bouquets

Writing before on this subject, about five years prior, I find I am once again finding beauty through grocery store bouquets. The flowers have gone up in price which one would expect over a five year stretch of time. These particular bouquets are five dollars. Each week while shopping I look forward to choosing one and returning home to put together fresh flowers for my home.
