{Bundle of Ranunculus, original acrylic painting}

Temperatures are soaring into the mid-90s (mid-30s C) here in DC today but I have a sweet bouquet of beautiful ranunculus for you to help stay cool. Summer must be here. ๐Ÿ™‚

After finishing the latest bridal bouquet (which will be up on the blog on Tuesday!), I wanted to continue painting a bouquet. They are just so much fun and challenging to paint. With flowers still getting ready to blossom, I didn’t want to highlight the delicate tissue-like petals too much and instead keep the feeling of a newly picked bouquet from the backyard.

Bundle of Ranunculus is an original acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas. It measures 16 x 20 inches and is 1.5 inches deep. It’s painted light gray on all four sides and is ready to hang on your wall. Check out more photos in the gallery. You can purchase this painting directly from the site, just click “add to cart” and your secure shopping is handled via Paypal in the gallery (more info in the shopping policies).

Did you know, in Victorian times, a recipient of ranunculus flowers was thought to be “rich in attractions,” or pleasing in appearance? Today, if you get these flowers (or the painting), the sender is trying to convey he or she is dazzled by your charms. Not too shabby! ๐Ÿ™‚
