These bouquets, all of them, I need them. Perfectly painted petals, illustrated blooms, flat graphic backgrounds… and those vases circa 1966-ish? I LOVE IT ALL! These paintings are the work of New Zealand based artist Wendy Matenga, and this is a chunk of her lovely artist statement:

“I currently have an obsession with flowers, I love painting them because I can arrange them like a florist can and then play with them in ways a florist can’t, floristry with a brush. I feel the need to honor them with accurate rendering before I allow myself to play. I am immensely thankful to be living in a time when there are so many different medias available and so many artists before me and around me to be inspired by.”

Amen, sister.

    WOW! I absolutely love these. Love the contrast of the graphic flower patterns with the actual flower renderings. Exquisite.
