February Experiments …Floral Friday

FF022814aFF022814bTransition from Winter to Spring is making itself known more frequently lately.  A person can feel a certain upsurge in energy, but still feels a draw to Winter.  I notice that ambiguous feeling nearly every year at this time.

This is when I feel the need to channel this energy into breaking out of the creative boxes.  The first urges towards Spring cleaning collide with this whole conglomeration, too.  So, I’ve swept the slate clean and started the processes.

FF022814cA blend of contemporary and vintage comes into play with the old McCoy vase and dried materials.  The reds and greens come together to brighten the earthy tones of the vase and the brown ferns.

Sometimes you just need to reach a little higher.  That’s what happened on the way to 92-cm (1-yard) to finish the hobby store, tall vase.  The orchids climb above their supports and other flowers play a supporting role.

I’m not quite sure what species the little critters are, Koalas, maybe?  They’re standing in front of what appears to be a surreal outhouse.  Poppy pods, greenery, and feathers add to the effect.  This one is just for fun.

Are you feeling a bit off the wall today, too?  Why not focus that energy into some sort of creative project?

    I’ve found that working on any kind of creative project on the side while I’m at work helps a lot. Lately it’s just been a small notebook of found items and notes that I add to every day. But it’s very satisfying.
