Gladiolus - Deep Purple

New piece completed for a friend. Dark Purple flowers and the gifter is thrilled, it's for her mom and purple is her mom's favorite color.

The length is approximately 30 inches long from tip to end.

Cold Porcelain with wire armature in the stem. Blessings!

Re: Gladiolus - Deep Purple

Thank you for your kind affirmation, Tuscanny!

I had some challenges with this piece, it's only the second gladiolus I've made, and the first was a number of years ago...but by grace, it's done!

I am most grateful for the abilities and gifts to replicate flowers...it amazes me to see them later on, like 'who did that? - me? Oh my!!!'

I get that same feeling when I look at pieces that the artists here put up, they amaze me with their talent. I am in awe of each and every one of you on Wet Canvas!!!

Blessings and gratitude in my heart this snowy winter's day in Northeast North America. LynneDe

Re: Gladiolus - Deep Purple

Thanks for the affirmation.

The purchaser is very pleased. She thinks her mom will love it, now wonders how to get it to her...It is gently boxed, but not for shipping, lol. The buyer will have to figure that out, I thought she would pick it up in time to drive it there...oh well!

Now I am going to have to work on boxing things for shipping I guess. Creating life-sized and life-like flowers is more complicated than I thought it would be. And that is a very nice puzzle to have to think about, now that I think of it. Blessings and gratitude, LynneDe
