May Flowers: Artisan Gallery Flair

by Jill of glazedOver

Imagine walking into an artisan’s gallery and strolling, thoughtfully and carefree, from work to work.  Now picture not only works of art representing flowers but also actual flowers arranged throughout and the rich scent that comes from them, filling the gallery.
…breathe…

Let the sensation lift your spirits and enliven your soul. You are in a sweet place where the glory and magnificence of flowers and the scents and sights that they inspire float not only from the work but also through your very being.
…each flower is a marvel…

Look from afar and be delighted. Come close to look carefully and be astonished by its complexity, how even the smallest flower can inspire a sense of wholeness and beauty because of its simplicity 0f perfection. If ever there was a creation that could inspire awe, it is the flower.
…what a spectacular thing is a flower…

To celebrate the May Flowers event so graciously sponsored by our own Roxana of IlluminatedPerfume, I have assembled some floral inspired Artisan Gallery works that, taken together in bouquet form, will lift the spirits and fill one with the wonder of the garden.
