Day Nine: "A Painting a Day" to Benefit the David Adler Music & Arts Center

"Persian Rose" Series

The ranuculus is one of my favorite blooms! I love their variety: brilliant and bold or soft and subtle, they always delight!

I also love exploring the meanings assigned to flowers. Did you know that ranuculus is Latin for "little frog?" Perhaps the reason is this:

"According to legend, a young Persian prince became enamored with a beautiful nymph and sang to her night and day. The nymphs became so tired of listening to the young prince sing that they turned him into a ranunculus flower."

This small and endearing flower was in Victorian times, sent to tell a lover that they were charming and attractive.

Today, I am offering two watercolors of these beautiful blooms painted on handmade paper infused with silver metallic ink.
