The Inspiration Behind 'Efflorescence'

'Efflorescence' is an elf portrait that is part of the 'Book of Elves' painting series. 'Book of Elves' is a series of elf portraits that are inspired by quotes from the 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson.

This portrait was inspired by the quote:

"The earth laughs in flowers."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Blue hydrangeas are my favourite flowers. I had a vision in my mind of a magical hydrangea garden under the soft light of a full moon. The elf in this portrait is the caretaker of these magical flowers. She welcomes you to her garden.

'Efflorescence' is available as a beautiful 16x20 inch (40x50cm) limited edition art print.
