Flower Power

This is my entry for The Three Muses challenge  "Word Art"- to create a piece inspired by a quote, poem or word.. I found this wonderful quote from Luther Burbank (1849-1926) a well known Botanist from my neck of the woods in Santa Rosa California where he set up a 40 acre science garden to produce new strains and varieties of fruits flowers and vegetables. A true horticultural pioneer for his time. Imagery for this digital journal style piece is from DCWV quote stacks, K and Company artist papers and digital painting in PSE.

  8. This is so delicate and the quote is lovely.

    I had to look for my jaw at the floor a few minutes ago just after I saw your piece celebrating the Earth Day. Astonishingly beautiful work, not to mention your words. I'm still trying to understand what you did there...
