While wearing a medium red tee-shirt, I washed and polished three red vases. I like to work with red containers when the weather is hazy and overcast. Today, I have three variants of vases featuring various shades of the color red.
The first arrangement uses my red “O” vase from “Target”. It is the only container that is sufficiently heavy and quirky enough to display the dinner plate size faux Gerbera daisy. I bent the industrial strength wire stem into a “U” shape to anchor the flower. More elements were added to provide a sense of balance to the project.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes 20th century, German-American abstract painter and designer Josef Albers. “If one says ‘red’ –the name of color–and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different.”
