A First Session

Digital original
I was quite surprised by Lisa’s suggestion to work with a flower; I seldom work with props, but given my recent exploration of frozen flowers, I decided to give it a go. Not fifteen minutes later, I was totally engaged by the interplay between the two forms, each enhancing the other.

The flower turned out to be really engaging to work with, and stayed the focus of almost 1/3 of the session. Towards the end, Lisa broke off the stem, and worked with the flower alone.

The sub-theme of this session was the props that Lisa had brought - the end of the session was spent working with a huge leaf she'd thought might work...it provided a rich mirroring of the lines in the sheets behind her in this image.
