more little gardens

happy thursday everyone! i have been working very hard on my up coming show, lots of drawings and decisions on what to move forward with and what not to. Here are some shots of my most recent florals that i have been working on.
morning glories. vines are something i have been wanting to plant. always spreading their happiness wherever they go. i love seeing them growing on houses, columns and fences. they have such a beautiful way about them.

 oh and daffodils! such happy plants. they remind me of the original willy wonka where he takes a "flower" off and drinks from it like tea and then bites into! oh man, favorite part of that movie. i really like when people eat in movies for some reason...

anywho, i am working on another painting and am also making a bunch of my chicky paintings :) lots of work to get done today!

xo,
cb

  3. The make-believe food they eat in Hook still makes my mouth water.

    And lovely drawings, once again!

  4. That is my favourite part of that movie. The beauty of that scene and the scene in Hook where they eat the made-up food are brilliant.

  9. You just made me want to go and watch that film again!

    I made a little morning glory 1-inch pin recently as part of my vintage 1920s picture book series, only it had an imperfection so I won't be selling it... still cute though & if you send me your address I'd love to give it to you :) theowlclub {at} rocketmail {dot} com

  13. I love your daffodils and morning glories! Such great work! I can't wait to see how your show turns out! I wish I could come out for it! Will you be making prints to sell on etsy?

    I think Morning Glories are illegal in Arizona... I think they're considered a hallucinogen or something weird like that. Which is odd, because they are so pretty.

    I love watching people eat in movies, too! I always wanted a tea cup I could eat like Willy. Everything always looks so good in movies.... I love when Meryl Streep plays the part of Julia Child... everything she eats looks so yummy. I also like watching Carrie eat pizza in Sex in the City, because she makes it seem like the most delicious thing she's ever had.

    1. really i never heard of morning glories being illegal because of that! i know the tree we have, the angel trumpet is not illegal but if you brew the leaves or something it makes a hallucinogenic tea...so interesting!

  15. Daffodils are my favorite flowers EXACTLY because of Willy Wonka! I just love them, they're so chipper!! <3

    Your art is so gorgeous!

  16. I love these flower illustrations too - so pretty. I have to admit I'm also a sucker for Willy Wonka eating the flower!

  17. ooooh, I would also love to have a creeping vine growing through my house! one that starts in a bottle of water....I have to research it some more. oh and the part I love in that movie is when he pulls one of mike tv's hairs out of his head!!!
