Bouquets to Art at the de Young, San Francisco - Portraits

 I think this first photo is my favorite rendition of art via flowers, especially with the organic nature and whimsical moss with tillandsia plants coming out as hands and feet.  It make me smile!

 This portrait struck me as very avante garde with dendrobium orchids, gypsophelia (baby's breath), jasmine and curly willow draping a mannequin.

 The phalaenopsis orchids and richly colored grasses compliment the regality of the black dress and red hair in the original painting.

 Peach, blush, cream, white and green orchids, kangaroo paw, hydrangea, stellata pots, lilies and more created an interesting rendition of a nude woman.

 The trailing white gerbera daisies, mums, roses, freesia and orchids espressed the trailing white gown in this portrait.

 Much like the first photo in this blog post this was a very literal interpretation of the woman in the field of tulips created with foliage, ribbon and flowers.
 Pastel flowers in a antique pedestal vase compliment this portrait.
This floral rendition was quite modern in form but also translated the movement of the fabric in the paiting on the woman's head.  It was striking!
