Floral Art Going Beyond The Limits
My love for Floral Art
The sweep of a brush, the scent of a flower, the click of a camera and the sound of a song are all beautiful expressions of art. Our world is full of exhilarating examples of art with all types of media bases. Creative minds see the world and everything in it as a blank canvas to create masterpieces, be it in writing, painting, music or anything really. Personally, I find some of the most magnificent artistic beauty in flowers and bouquets. Flowers exude a natural elegance and beauty that cannot be matched.
Flowers have been used in art for thousands of years. Artists and creative illusionists alike knew that the flower held vast possibilities when it came to art. The earliest known record of a flower being used in art is dated back to the Egyptian times, when the lotus was a symbol of great meaning. The Egyptians believed that the world started out as a vast oceanic expanse with a supreme ruled named Nun. Nun produced a single white lotus lower upon a hill of sand. The lotus would bloom and close daily, symbolizing the circle of life and the purity of life. It was believed that Nun allowed the lotus to hold the sun god, Atum, in his earthly form and that the petals at night would protect him until the new dawn.
When it comes to floral art, there really are endless ways that they can be utilized. The possibilities are endless and your imagination boundless. Let your imagination flow and let the beauty of the floral world around you be your inspiration. There are no wrongs or rights when it comes to designing with flowers. Flowers are part of our everyday life and we should use them to the best of both our and their abilities. They were created for our use and enjoyment and when we are able to use them to enhance the natural enjoyment, we are creating art in that alone! There is no limit to the uses for all flora types!
Whether you are just starting out in learning about how flowers are used for every day purposes and art or whether you are a seasoned floral artist, you will never know how amazing flowers really are in art until you try to use them yourself. Again, there are no rights and wrongs, only new ideas and designs that have yet to be created.
Just as the civilizations of old times used them to create history and thought of them as center points in life, you can do the same and keep the spirit and history, as well as the magic and beauty, of flora alive. You are the artist and the flowers and other horticulture are your tools. Use them to create anything that you want and see the new artistic life that forms from it! There are no bounds, there are no limits, so let the flora take you to new places and enjoy what it can bring you!
