Since I mentioned my flowers I thought I should share some incredible flower images that I have been being inspired by lately. Growing up I spent a fair amount of time at the Cincinnati Art Museum and once I had my license went there ALL THE TIME. One of my favorite spots was this little gem of a room with their Dutch Still Life collection. It was a small circular room with a domed roof, very dark except for the traditional feature lights, the walls a dark turquoise green. Hung on the walls were maybe 6 or 8 dutch still life's. I was drawn to their stillness, their small details of decay within the beauty and life, the dramatic lighting, and specialness of the room.
To this day I am continuously drawn to the still life and so the photographs of florist and stylist Sarah Ryhanan documented on her blog Saipua are totally inspiring and uber gorgeous. Enjoy the visit.
