Category 2 - Theme : "Bountiful Blossoms"
Participated in exhibition and
competition at the First World Wide Pressed Flower Guild Conference.
May Long with her Multiple
Award Winning "Bountiful Joy".
Everything on this picture was created with pressed
flowers and leaves, except for the background
Some of these flowers were pressed 4 years ago, although most were pressed this year.
Naming the picture...
While I was working on this picture, I got really sick and to stop work completely for about 2 weeks. As soon as I was well enough, I returned to my work with a renewed sense of joy, as I completed the picture with a thankful heart to God. I think that feeling was reflected in this picture.
I entered only one picture for this pressed flower competition in Category 2 with the theme of "Bountiful Blossoms out of 3 different categories. When I have some time later on, I would like to attempt "painting" a landscape picture as in Category 1 with pressed plants.
The Theme for the competition was Bountiful Blossoms. Someone asked me what I've named my picture, and at that time, it didn't have a name. When I got home and looked at the picture again, the name became obvious to me. "Bountiful Joy". That is the feeling in my heart.
I am honored and happy to share "Bountiful Joy" with you!
