I’ve always wanted to buy flowers, but it never seemed practical, and I don’t always like the premade bouquets sold in stores. So I never bought myself flowers. Then one day I wanted flowers. I needed to have flowers in my life right that second.
I checked my money situation, got in the car and purchased a red flower bunch from the local grocery store. Every time I looked at them I’d break out into a smile. While at the laundromat a few days later I took a skillshare class on the basics of grocery store floral arrangements. Later that same day I headed out to the store to purchase flowers for my first floral arrangement.
I don’t know why but putting the arrangement together was a lot of fun. I mean it doesn’t sound all that exciting, you’re literally putting flowers in a fancy water filled cup, but I really enjoyed it.
Soon after taking floral arranging classes, I expanded to drawing flowers and attempting to paint them. Now I’m on the hunt for floral paintings. Specifically impressionist water color illustrations with soft yet vibrant colors.
