One of my favorite things in the weekend Wall Street Journal ‘Off Duty’ section is a monthly column called Flower School. In it, Lindsey Taylor puts together a floral arrangement based on a work of art. The flowers and arrangement are always gorgeous as is the photograph of it. She really does capture the mood, colors and composition of a piece. Her write-up is delightful too. It’s perfect in every way. Sometimes the art work is well known but often it’s an artist I’ve not heard of or a piece I’ve not seen. I end up looking up that artist to learn more so it’s educational in addition to being visually pleasing. A nice break from the news.

For my arrangement above, I cut leaves, flowers and a bowl shape from white card stock and glued them to Canson dark gray pastel paper using YES! paste. Cutting and pasting–one of life’s simple joys.
Lovely! What fun! Many years ago I went to a show of Matisse’s late-in-life paper cuts – you could tell he was having fun doing them, there was a bounce in the shapes. Yours too.
Thanks Michele, what a nice thing to say.
As usual, you are amazing. I love that you are having so much fun. Barb
Thanks Barb, now if I would just do this more frequently…
Very Matisse. Fun!
