This is a mixed-media piece I made using techniques I'm learning in Creative Textures. I'm not really sure that this style of painting is something that I will do again, but I had a lot of fun creating this one.
The title "The Language of Flowers" refers to the french text that is collaged to some of the flowers. I cut the lines from a book that I found in a flea market that is a series of weekly stories that were printed on newsprint and later bound into a hardcover book. The stories are dated from November of 1886 to October of 1887. The tales are accompanied by wonderful engravings.
Some of the phrases on my piece are:
"Parce que, parce que....." ("Because, because....")
"jusqu' au bout, mon cher" ("until the end, my dear")
"la bonne nouvelle" ("good news")
I hope you all have someone speak in the language of flowers to you soon~~*sigh*
