Now that I've put it out there, can it happen IMMEDIATELY, please. Great, thanks.
I recently wrote a short bit about flowers, and of course, Cara's floral trash textiles. You can read it here. Here are some photos from the story-- I made this arrangement below inspired by some of Cara's work. Last month I had an affair with this purple hardenbergia. Yes, an affair; this is what I do in my spare time off of work. I go to the market and buy purple hardenbergia instead of doing my laundry and finding balance in my life. I two-time my flowers with more flowers. JAYSUS! Sometimes you just gotta. Because?...its color is unbelievable; the most intense POP bright amaaaazing vibrant ever. I like that this one has different shades of purple all wrapped up in one tiny but powerful little flower.
Then I added these ranunculus and poppies to the arrangement, because the colors made me think of these Cara Marie Piazza textiles from the last couple of posts. But it made me not like the arrangement; kind of love hate it, or something like that. But that's life- sometimes you make something you very much dislike and you think, "UMMMMM who am I?! Did I just do this? Does my arrangement have a purple ponytail?! WTF." Better to experiment and hate than to stay bored, right? And I HAVE to show it to you because it was all inspired by this one particular textile, and the point was to reference it...and soon we can see what these floral leftovers will look like as dye!
Poopy's doin thair thang. Poppy's.
