    sweet. great idea to retrieve and reuse for the sake of art. nice art piece. looks like a beautiful representation. colors are spot on and the textures and delicateness are great.

    Hi SP ... thanks for the comments ... this was also an attempt to capture a sense of fragility, and in this I was only marginally successful, and so will be returning to it again and again ...

    chinapete...as albert noted a great concept and expertly carried out..the delicate faded colors, and overlaid edges and folds.. whisper of fragrance long ago, a moment in time that wanted to be saved and savored ...a visual poem in its own right.

    I love this and it is bittersweet since my Mom passed April 6 and I need to go check the flowers that I pressed. Still in denial , but this may get me kick started. Thanks

    Shibui, my condolences ... if this flower brought you a found moment in the midst of your loss, then it was worth doing ...
