Blue Bachelor Buttons Watercolor Painting

Blue Bachelor Buttons Watercolor Painting


This painting depicts a single stem of bachelor buttons, also known as cornflowers. It's reminiscent of pages from a botanical field guide with hints of the childlike joy of crawling through the garden searching for its magic.

There's something special about blue flowers, don't you think? They are delightful in a cottage garden, making other colors stand out. Maybe you even picked them when you were a child. They evoke thoughts of sunny afternoons spent in a wildflower meadow, finding shapes in the clouds and trying to pounce on and catch grasshoppers.

There's joy in something so simple. There's elegance in something so ordinary.

This painting captures that simple elegance. The flowers, captured with water and paint on paper, contain that joy.

Framed and hung in your home this painting will whisper this reminder: look for beauty and joy in the everyday.
