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.
