"The earth laughs in flowers." Ralph Waldo Emerson
You know how fresh flowers are the first things you see when walking into a Whole Foods store? Sometimes, especially this time of year, I'll just stand amongst the blooms and pretend it's spring. I'm always tempted to buy up the entire section, and often I'll walk out with a bouquet to bring some life to my living room.
"A flower blossoms for its own joy." -Oscar Wilde
Setting up a still life can be an enjoyable process. Allow your theme to determine the objects and how you place them in the scene. In this composition, a variety of textures spice up a simple floral setup to create an eclectic country theme. The bright, simple shapes of the sunflowers serve as the dominant focus, with the blanket adding detail and contrast. The rustic wood backdrop, chipped table, and unusual vase add interest with soft, mottled textures.
