Description 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved
A somewhat unsophisticated mixed wreath - wildflowers and flowers from the garden - sits on a dove-gray patterned background, bordered by stylized meadow grass.
The appeal of this type of design would have crossed class lines in Victorian culture: an idealized rusticity for the wealthy; an accessible, almost folk-art image for the farming and working population. A dapper beau could send this card to a lady and be sure she would be charmed; a farm boy could comfortably purchase and give it to a girl he fancied.
Digital oil painting of flowers adapted from one of my older photographs superimposed on an original digital background.
