Improvised Simplicity …Floral Friday

Some jazz improv was playing on the radio as I gathered the materials for today’s projects. There was no announcing of who the artists were or when and where the music was recorded. It was an uptempo blend of electric piano and flute. The tunes certainly influenced the direction of my floral improvisation. All three arrangements are based on one central bloom with some simple complications.

The black vase in a black frame spoke to me from the cluttered thrift store shelf so I brought it home to use as soon as possible. Twigs and constructed elements frame and compliment the daisy.


The enameled solid brass Indian onion vase set just the right tone for this time of year. Variations of yellow continue the theme in modernistic style.


The bird of paradise is rooted in a heavy studio vase. The resulting statement is bold and assertive.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes filmmaker Ken Burns. “The genius of our country is improvisation, and jazz reflects that. It’s our great contribution to the arts.”
