I sometimes buy flowers to decorate my home, but more often I prefer to decorate with what is available. Pruned edges of plants become a dramatic arrangement, dried crape myrtle blossoms are miniature "winter tulips", fresh blooms and herbs brighten a kitchen window or table. Bring the outside in, keep it simple, find beauty in something that would otherwise be mundane.
Still Life art featuring a bounty of fruit and everyday objects, so I snapped a few pictures.
Consider yourself warned: these "still life" arrangements go fast if you have growing children around. So why relegate these wonderful colors to the refrigerator? I say enjoy the beauty, meditate on the impermanence of life, and then have a snack.
