The trend of featuring a flower arrangement in front of a painting is sweeping the nation, and Greenville's Art Museum, Greenville County Museum of Art, has jumped on the bandwagon too.
I was honored to be a part of the weekend-long event and created an arrangement inspired by an Andrew Wyeth painting of a lady (I interpreted her as a nun) lounging in a field.
Because Nuns are brides of Christ, I went for flowers that are typically in Bride's bouquets like Peonies, Queen Ann's Lace, and Garden Roses.) But I wanted the natural quality of the field to be felt, so I incorporated in lots of natural grasses picked from a field. The arrangement was situated in a Bread bowl to evoke the natural color palette and shapes Wyeth was drawn to in his work.
The arrangement situated in front of the painting that inspired it.

The Queen Anne's Lace lives up to it's name here.

This table shows a few arrangements designed by the amazingly talented Kiana Underwood of Tulipina Design, who lead a design lecture for the weekend.
It was an incredible weekend, and I am so thankful to the Museum for putting it on and allowing me to be a part of it.
