Garden Florals on Canvas

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

I have now launched a new aspect of my garden design work which is my artwork, using my own gardens as inspiration. I use high resolution digital cameras to produce my initial photos of flowers in my garden. Then, using software applications, I transform these original photos into the final images. I will also use pencil, ink or paint to complete an image, if appropriate, before it is varnished and framed. I have chosen to frame them with lovely dark frames, which I feel makes the images the focus.

I intend to add new images, as they are finished, and if you would like to be notified of my latest posts, whether they be garden design posts, or garden floral images, please click on this address and then scroll down to get to the CONTACT section  http://www.greendesign-gardenstolivein.com/html-contact-form.php

One of my latest floral giclee canvases, below, has a romantic verse in Latin. The translation of the verse is:

“The soft west wind arises, and the warm sun advances; now the earth lays bare her breast and flows out with her sweetness.”

“The soft west wind arises….”

This image began as a photo of one of my white Dahlias which was growing near our back door. It was so very large that I had to go and get my measuring tape to check its size –  11 inches!! Yes, absolutely amazing…..  And so, I began to snap many, many photos of this one Dahlia. I had two others, very similar in colour and size, growing nearby, and they have become the inspiration for the first of my giclee canvas images. The canvases themselves come in several different sizes, from 8×10 inches to 18×24 inches but of course, with the frame added, the largest framed piece measures about 25 inches x 32 inches.

Latin translation: “Art, for the sake of art.”
