This painting was commissioned by a newlywed. After seeing several of my bouquets come to life online, she knew this was how she wanted to preserve her bouquet. Her one request was to have it in a whimsical style, the rest she left in my artistic hands and she wanted to be totally surprised with how it looked when it was finished. She loved it.
I chose the purple background color to play off of the lavender brushstrokes in the freesia flowers, and for the white roses to really stand out. This was a soft and lovely bouquet and it needed a bolder background color to play off of the client’s personality.
