Some floral inspiration:
That's some great inspiration, right?
Great inspiration and some great raw materials:
A beautiful woman, her name is Jill.
A couple yards of hand dyed fabric in a color gradation from yellow to fuchsia.
Some olive (about five different shades of greens and earthy tones) procion dye for the clothing...
A little time and attention to making petals...
Plus a handful of sunflower seeds, some moss covered wire, some spirit gum and mineral makeup
And then a very patient model who let me put it all together...
And a funny little red cardinal who sat on her shoulder for a moment. (And then fell off!)
I don't have any photos back from the photo shoot yet, that will take some time. This was just one I snapped when I had the chance. So... more photos coming. I think one of my favorite parts were the jewelry on her wrists and ankles/feet which you can't even see. And another angle would better show her head gear, but patience... photos are coming.
Nothing like a creative day in the studio hard at play... If I could give that to you as a gift, I sure would. Because there is nothing like loving what you do! Nothing like it!
