Monday Match: When the Flowers are the Main Attraction Edition

{Every week I post an image of an interior that reminds me of a work of art either in its palette, composition or mood. I hope that you enjoy!}

Edgar Degas, A Woman Seated beside a Vase of Flowers

* I find it equal parts compelling and odd that enormous bouquets of autumn flowers take center stage in both of the above images.


  1. I think artists sometimes lose themselves in a painting and become so enamored of the process of, say painting a flower, the object begins to dominate the work. At least that can be the case for me. I do think the works become compelling because there seems to be a bit of abandon in them.

  2. Interesting thoughts, Heather. I suppose the same thing has happened to me in my work...
