About This Group

This group celebrates flowers and their containers, be it a vase ,the earth of a garden, or the sky like space of the imagination,
Any painting and drawing medium are accepted based on the quality of the work itself.
The focus is the flower outside of a purely realistic rendition.

Each artist has evolved a style and feeling for working with this motif over time. An ongoing discussion of process and inspiration will be enriching all around.

The vase with flowers impressionist era and on, done beautifully, is captivating and mesmerizing for the entire range of viewers.
The intent of this group is to function as a gallery of exceptional work , incorporating the heritage of the great modern master

New members are asked to post something to the discussion page prior to their work being addded to the group. Creative, provocative or short and simple. This way I can link a real person to an image and so can everyone else. .

I encourage you to send a group of your best work , three to five images, at a time, so they showcase together on the images pages.
