This painting was created for the Draw A Dot open call for the Valentino Fall 2018 Couture Collection. There were many references and themes in the collection, which was absolutely breathtaking. I went through the collection many times and chose these three looks for the brilliant colors and gorgeous floral headpieces. I put them together to create an intensely colored, bright garden that would attract butterflies and hummingbirds alike with their beauty. This piece was also the beginning of my love affair with metallic watercolors, which I used to create shimmer on the butterflies and hummingbirds.
This print would be beautiful in a city apartment, a sophisticated reminder of the beauty of nature. It would be equally at home in the airy, light-filled living room of someone who loves flowers.
