Wedding Invitation

Flowers in a Mason Jar
This new invitation design is a revision to my recently completed "Wildflowers in Mason Jar" design.  The invitation was revisited for a couple who will wed this fall in Missouri.  They asked me to customize this design with the flowers the have selected for their wedding, including peonies, dahlia, and yellow billy balls.
I'm totally delighted by the aesthetic of flowers in a Mason Jar.  Flowers inevitably portray a certain elegance, which combined with the relaxed, practical nature of a mason jars strikes just the right tone.  It was an interesting exercise to paint flowers.  I don't paint a lot of still lifes and it is certainly a different sort of challenge to paint something at close to full scale.
What flowers do you like to arrange in a mason jar?
Pin It!
