Gift Bearers


This painting by Philip C Curtis inspired another floral artist last year.  In fact, I featured it here.
This interpretation is a little different.  Each little cluster of flowers represents the gifts the men are holding in the painting.  I'm a big fan of Philip C Curtis who was from Arizona and helped found the Phoenix Art Museum.

I should be so clever! Wonderful floral interpretation of the painting.

I wonder if the floral artists each year look at photos from the previous years either to find inspiration or to make sure that their creations are different.

I'd love to see the painting. Gotta check this museum out.

So cool! Isn't it great to see how differently people interpretate the paintings.

This painting inspired some great ideas in floral arrangements.

Looks really good when you pull it in close Sharon. Last years interpretation was pretty amazing also.

He did a great job again. I love seeing your pictures from this exhibit.

Do they choose the same paintings each year, or vary the selections?

Interesting. I remember seeing that Curtis painting on my first elementary school field trip to the museum.

Different! I have never heard of him.

I can see where this whole process can be quite challenging. They did a great job.

This flower arrangement seems to be more cheerful than the one of last year.

Great composition with all points of interests and color shapes joined together in harmony.

I remember these floral arrangements from a previous time. They are quite attractive and very interesting...terrific creativity represented in this arrangement!

Your museum photos are very nice. I'm guessing you didn't use flash but must have a very fast lens?

I like this one. And, the flower artist last year also did a good job.
